SOLUTION FOCUSED BRIEF THERAPY (SFBT)
This is a two-day course which gives an introduction to the theory and application of Solution Focused Brief Therapy. No prior knowledge of systemic approaches is required, and one of the primary aims of the training is to give practitioners the confidence to incorporate their learning into existing ways of working, offering an immediate opportunity to expand their repertoire of skills. The structure of the course is such that it takes participants through the principal features of the model step by step, allowing for small and large group discussion and the opportunity to experiment through role-play and use of own case material at each step. It is very much a “skills-focused” course with many "hands on" exercises.
course is intended for social work practitioners from a variety of settings and
can include those from different specialisms such as children and families, YOT,
disabilities, mental health and older people. The
content of the course will be mainly directed to children or families but the
