This workshop will celebrate the theoretical, technical and clinical contributions of the late Steve de Shazer through video tape, lecture and discussion. It will include a brief preview of material from de Shazer's most recent book, More Than Miracle: The State of the Art of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy which updates the SFBT.


Educational Objectives:

  1. To list two core principles of de Shazer's approach.
  2. To describe one characteristic that distinguishes de Shazer's SFBT approach from traditional psychotherapeutic approaches.

Note: Steve de Shazer declined participation in the Evolution of Psychotherapy Conference due to ill health. Subsequent to his death in September 2005, the Milton Erickson Foundation organized this tribute by one of his closest collaborators.
