Milton Erickson’s notions of utilization and the development of expectations are the foundation of Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT).  This therapeutic approach assists clients in utilizing their own re-sources and developing hope and expectancy of change to achieve their goals.  This workshop will provide participants with an in-depth explanation of how SFBT helps clients by instilling hope and infusing an expectation of change in its core philosophy and therapeutic interventions.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Explain how the philosophical underpinnings of Solution Focused Brief Therapy are based upon the notion of expectation.
  2. Describe how the therapeutic techniques of Solution Focused Brief Therapy utilize clients’ resources and expectancy of hope and change.
