604 Becoming a Solution Focused Therapist

How to Make Therapy Briefer and More Effective

While most traditional therapies tend to focus on a problem rather than its solution, solution-focused brief therapists are trained in the deceptively simple art of asking targeted questions about what the problem’s solution may be. This approach can accelerate therapy with a range of challenging clinical issues, including anxiety and depression. In this highly interactive workshop, you’ll learn how to master the art of asking solution-focused questions tailored to 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
  • Competently maintain the flow of a solution-focused conversation, regardless of the severity of the presented problem
  • Apply a new perspective on using the solution-focused approach in your own work that integrates focusing on a desired outcome, using the client’s language to ask questions, and evoking client strengths in therapy
