Conversations That Create Hope - An introduction to the Solution Focused Approach.
Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) is an approach which is forward-focused rather than looking backwards to analyse the past. It is based on solution building and explores strengths, personal resources and future hopes rather than problems, illness, weakness or deficits.
Applicable and effective in a range of clinical, social, educational and corporate settings, it can be used in virtually any situation where people want to improve something in their lives. One of the great things is that you don't have to be a therapist to use it, and this presentation will highlight that anyone can use SFBT in any situation where a person wants something to be better, but may not know how to go about doing it.
The interactive online workshop will be an introduction to SFBT, targeted at people who have little or no prior knowledge of the therapy. It will include many more stories and examples from Emma and David, as well as plenty of opportunities to practice the skills and to ask questions.
At the end of the workshop attendees will:
- understand the core tenets and principles of the approach
- understand some of the main techniques of the approach (and will have practiced using these in the workshop)
- understand how the SF approach can be used within a variety of settings (clinical and non-clinical)
- have knowledge and tools to be able to start using the approach in their own workplace.
Who Should Attend:
This workshop is for all who work to support others to change, or who want to find a better way of doing things, from large corporations, to small business, and individuals.

- help leaders, managers and executives to become better leaders

- improving employee wellbeing and reducing burnout
