Description: This workshop will provide an overview of the fundamentals of the evidenced-based approach of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy. A special emphasis will be placed on how to use this approach to engage children and families. Participants will learn how solution building differs from problem solving, learn practical tools to engage with externally motivated clients building on their strengths and resources, and learn how to utilize a system’s perspective to enhance goal negotiation. The workshop is designed so participants will be able to immediately implement the practical skills learned, and will be taught using a combination of didactics, interactive practice exercises, video and case examples.

Following this training the participants will understand:

  1. The unique aspects of solution-focused therapy and how this differs from a problem-focused perspective.

  2. Solution-focused skills that assist in engaging with children and families

  3. The skills of identifying and amplifying positive differences (exceptions) uncovering resources and strengths.

  4. Several types of solution-focused scaling questions
