The Solution Focused Approach is a widely accepted way of conducted psychotherapy sessions. Over the past 40 years this approach has come to be known for its brevity, pragmatism and positive stance. However, many inaccurate myths about this approach exist which impact many clinicians' ability to understand, and subsequently use, this approach. There is one misunderstanding that stands above all others, and this workshop will directly address this common misunderstanding while showing to not succumb to this idea and how to follow the true essence of Solution Focused work.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe the Solution Focused Approach in their work.
  2. Identify the strengths and weakness of the Solution Focused Approach.
  3. Identify the difference between problem focused and Solution Focused questions.
