Description

ADVANCED: Staying BRIEF

Aims of programme

This 2-day programme is designed to help build the confidence those practitioners who have already completed a Foundation Course in Solution Focused Practice. It is intended that by the end of the course participants will have had the opportunity to:

  • Review the main elements of Solution Focus Practice
  • Address issues that have arisen in their Solution Focused work
  • Observe recordings of therapy undertaken by BRIEF with clients
  • Practice the techniques in order to further develop
  • And become freshly energized and raring to go with their next client back at work!

For whom

This programme is intended for those who do direct work with clients

Solution Focused approach

The Solution Focused approach is based on a simple set of practical ideas, which nonetheless make a difference. The key elements are as follows:

  • Agreeing an outcome from the work
  • Describing a preferred future
  • Exploring ‘instances’ and ‘exceptions’: times the future is already present
  • Using scales, link past and present with the client’s hoped-for future
  • Follow-up sessions: tracing progress
  • Keeping client-centred

Course methods

The course will contain a lively mixture of presentation discussion, videotape demonstration and practice- based exercise. The exercise in pairs, threes and small groups are intended to exemplify the approach while being of direct use to course members.

Course content

Each course is a unique event and the programme will be adapted to fit each group of participants

  • A review of the Solution Focused approach
  • Building on what works: looking at sparkling moments in participants’ Solution Focused Practice
  • Revisiting “best hopes” questions
  • Putting numbers to work: more on scale questions
  • Dealing with setbacks and stuck cases

Pre-course preparation

As you will already be familiar with Solution Focused practice, we would ask you to notice anything you do that is Solution Focused in your work, and in particular, anything that you do that you think might be associated with progress on the part of your clients.
