Designed to complement any theoretical framework, Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT) engages and activates clients to make change, whether they are new to therapy or have found themselves “stuck” in the therapeutic process. Unlike traditional problem-driven approaches, Solution-Focused Therapy helps clients to identify personal strengths and areas of successful functioning which they can build upon.
SFT translates the idea of “strength-based treatment” into concrete, easily digestible concepts and skills. Packed with case examples; video and film demonstrations; discussion and practice, the workshop is engaging, informative and immediately useful to clinicians at any skill level.
