This workshop provides a framework for assessing clients along two important dimensions that impact therapeutic outcome: motivation and sense of agency (one’s perception of their ability to create change in their own lives). This assessment fosters interventions that enhance the capacity for strategic interventions to be truly brief and solution focused. The participant in this workshop will have the opportunity to observe and practice this approach.
This demonstration entails identification of desired change, assessment and enhancement of motivation, and implementation of a solution oriented, strategic intervention. This approach utilizes client strengths and experiences to improve outcome through accessing prior success experiences.

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.
Since the Solution Focused Approach is conversational in nature, and, based on questions, the clinician who is working with couples needs to be comfortable asking these kinds of questions when there are more than one person in the room. This can be tricky due to the nature of couples therapy. This talk will center on how to conduct couples session using this approach and how to use the question process to navigate even the trickiest sessions.
Since the Solution Focused Approach is a questions based process, it is essential that clinicians learn the art of asking the kinds of questions that lead towards sustainable questions in their clients' lives. This means your learning has to go beyond theory and technique, instead being about language. This workshop will be about this question process. The facilitator will demonstrate 5 different categories of SFBT questions showing how to ask such questions in a way that leads towards the kind of client responses that are likely to lead towards change.
This workshop will describe strategies and approaches adapted from brief and solution focused therapy. These enhanced mediation with creative ways to set a tone and reduce anxiety and resistance; to give voice to participants while getting to the heart of the matter; to unlock narrow positions, break through impasses, move to broader viewpoints, and co-create solutions.
This workshop examines the distinctions among Brief, Solution-Focused, and Strategic interventions, with emphasis given to development of genuinely strategic interventions. The workshop also provides a framework for assessing clients along two important dimensions that impact therapeutic outcome: motivation and sense of agency (one’s perception of their ability to create change in their own lives).
What sets the Solution Focused Approach apart is the clinician’s deliberate focus on what the client wants instead of focusing on what the client does not want or even their presenting problem. A clinician using this approach must be comfortable enough with solution building language to be able to engage clients into a detailed conversation of their preferred future even though the client may be experience significant troubles in their life. In this workshop the presenter will demonstrate using the language of the Solution Focused Approach with clients, using video examples of real sessions, even when they are experiencing significant pain. The presenter will also lead group exercises and discussion to allow the group to practice using the skills demonstrated.
