Couples come to therapy with a myriad of complications, things like infidelity or communication issue are common issues that bring people into our offices. Managing these issues can be tricky and conducting a session that leads towards change can be even trickier. There is often a strong temptation to try to “teach” the couple how to function. However, we have to resist this urge because it doesn’t work nor does it lead towards change. In this workshop I am going to show you how to use the Solution Focused Approach to help couples create positive change in their relationship, regardless of the referral issue. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will gain an understanding of the Diamond Approach to SFBT and how this approach is an evolution of traditional SFBT.
  2. Participants will understand how using the Diamond Approach to SFBT will help them avoid the need to teach couples new skills during therapy.
  3. Participants will gain an understanding about how SFBT can be used to help couples with any referral issue to experience positive change.
