Due to limited resources or time, our role of supporting others as counsellors and helpers is often brief. That is why it is essential to have the skills to explore meaningful goals and achieve practical advancements in a short period of time. Solution-focused therapy (SFT) is a short-term, goal-oriented counselling approach that seeks to help clients by focusing on solutions rather than problems. This workshop provides an overview of the SFT framework and explores its strengths and limitations. Participants will learn practical strategies for helping others reach achievable goals and gain an increased confidence and capacity for supporting others when there are time constraints.
Some of the Topics Included
- Guiding Ideology of a SFT Framework
- Strengths and Cautions of SFT
- Practical, Solution-Focused Strategies
- Building a Strong Counselling Relationship
- Understanding and Assessing for Motivation
- Important Elements of Effective Goal Setting
- Balancing Motivation, Accountability, and Hope
- Effective Questions for Finding Solutions
- Exploring the Expertise of Clients
- Creating Strong Action Plans
This is an introductory-intermediate level workshop for social service and health care professionals, counsellors, social workers, school personnel, and anyone supporting people in their attempt to make meaningful or necessary life changes.
Method of Delivery
Presentation, video, case study exercises, experiential practice, personal reflection, and small group discussions.
At the end of this workshop, participants should be able to:
- List strengths and cautions of solution-focused therapy
- Identify practical, solution-focused strategies
- Illustrate the elements of effective goal setting
- Demonstrate steps to match relationship building with goal setting
