Solution Focused Therapy
About this Training
“In problem-focused approaches, too much time is spent on identifying what is not working, instead of looking in a variety of contexts for times when things are working. Using the solution-focused approach, empowerment takes place in the very first meeting and keeps everyone focused on the direction of choice.”
Attendees will learn the basic tenets of the solution-focused approach
Attendees will learn the three basic questions that compose a solution-focused conversation
Attendees will learn solution focused narrative therapy questions for clients dealing with trauma, grief and loss.
