Learning to use a Solution-Focused approach | 2 Days - 8 & 15 October 2024 (9am – 4.30pm) Online Training | CPD accredited

09:00-16:30 8 & 15 October 2024



October 8, 2024 - 09:00


October 15, 2024 - 16:30

In this two-day, CPD accredited, online Solution-Focused Training, participants will dive into the world of solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT), gaining practical skills and insights to uplift their practice. This approach is suitable for working with both adults and children and young people.


Expect interactive sessions, real-life case studies, and plenty of hands-on activities to grasp the essence of SFBT.


Throughout the training, you will learn how to have meaningful conversations with clients, focusing on their strengths and future goals. By asking the right questions, you can help clients uncover their own solutions and feel empowered to make positive changes in their lives.


One of the core skills is discovering how to reframe problems into opportunities for personal growth. Instead of dwelling on what’s wrong, you learn to spotlight what’s right and how to amplify clients’ strengths to overcome challenges.


Setting goals and tracking progress is another key skill. You will explore how to collaborate with clients in setting achievable goals and celebrate each step forward that they take.


The training is not just about theory—it’s about practical application. You will get to practice your newfound skills in various counselling scenarios, from one-on-one sessions to group settings.


Overall, this training equips you with a toolbox full of effective techniques to help your clients thrive. It’s all about fostering resilience, igniting hope, and empowering clients to take charge of their own journey towards positive change.


Both dates MUST be attended to gain the CPD accreditation. This training is worth 15 CPD points.
