Training Overview Description

Description

Heard about solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT) and wondering what it really is? Have you heard about SFBT and think it could never work with some of the more challenging diagnoses and conditions, such as schizophrenia, chronic addiction, and trauma? This is the webinar for you. This training offers an overview of what evidence-based SFBT is, how and why it works, and provides concrete tools you can begin using immediately. This class is taught by international trainer, consultant, and author, Teri Pichot. Pichot studied under Insoo Kim Berg and has developed and implemented programs that used solution-focused brief therapy with some of the most challenging populations including addiction, domestic violence, and chronic mental illness.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will be able to describe the difference between problem-solving and solution-building.

  • Participants will be able to summarize what the research tells us about what causes change for clients.

  • Participants will be able to identify three SFBT skills that they can immediately begin using with clients.

Content Level

Intermediate level courses provide information that builds on knowledge practitioners with some experience already have. These courses focus on skill-building or adding knowledge, possibly following a brief overview of basic information, and involve using information in concrete situations and understanding the underlying structure of the material.
