Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) is widely thought of as one of the most useful interventions when supporting clients to make positive life changes. It is described as a practical, clear, goal driven model and is used to treat people with a ‘variety of issues, including behavioural problems, complex family dynamics, abusive behaviour, addiction, and relationship problems.’
Solution Focused Brief Therapy is a highly accessible approach to learn and embed into your role and puts emphasis on client strengths and setting positive goals, rather than being problem-focused as other traditional methods can be.
SFBT can be used as a stand-alone therapy but can also be integrated successfully with other approaches such as Motivational Interviewing and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
This two day skills-based course provides a structured and interactive exploration of the foundational theory and techniques required to effectively deliver an SFBT intervention and will support you to feel more confident in applying SFBT into your daily interactions and practice.
The key elements covered will be:
- An overview of Solution Focused Brief Therapy
- Identifying when SFBT is most useful to integrate into interventions
- Developing a shared agenda and goal setting
- Exception Seeking, elicit internal and external resources
- How to review progress
