609 - Becoming a Solution-Focused Therapist

How to Make Therapy Briefer and More Effective

While most traditional therapies tend to focus on the problem rather than the solution, Solution Focused Brief Therapy offers a different pathway. Learn a deceptively simple process of asking targeted questions that can accelerate therapy with a range of challenging clinical issues, including anxiety and depression. In this highly interactive workshop, using session videos and live demonstrations, you’ll learn how to tailor a solution-focused approach that honors each client’s path to healing. You’ll explore how to: 

  • Leverage the most positive aspects of a client’s experience to more quickly and effectively achieve clinical goals 
  • Ask the right targeted questions in ways that turn problems into movement toward solutions in every session 
  • Apply a new perspective on using the solution-focused approach that integrates recent developments, such as focusing on a desired outcome, using the client’s language to ask questions, and evoking client strengths in therapy 

Elliott Connie, MA, LPC, is a therapist, international trainer, and the founder of The Solution Focused University, an online training community. His books include Solution Building in Couples Therapy, The Solution Focused Marriage, and The Art of Solution Focused Therapy. 

Note: This workshop is available as self-study credit.
