Suitable for health clinicians

Workshop aim

The Solution Focussed (Brief) Therapy workshop is aimed at clinicians with little or no previous knowledge of SFBT.  SFBT comprises a goal-directed collaborative approach to psychotherapeutic change that is conducted through direct observation of clients' responses to a series of constructed question formats.  SFBT may be used when a less confronting therapeutic may be required rather than using traditional Cognitive Behavioural or Interpersonal Therapies.  SFBT is supporting clients to identify and attend to their own internal competencies, skills and resources; as well as their immediate support systems and supportive social networks.

  • Origins of SFBT
  • An understanding of the principles of SFBT
  • Key themes of SFBT
