This training is designed to introduce you to a Solution Focused Therapy derived approaches to supporting individuals with complex needs - which might include a history of traumatic life events, homelessness, addictions, mental health difficulties, physical health problems and more.

To do so we will be learning a particular method and set of techniques borrowed from solution focussed brief therapy. This method offers a powerful and rewarding way of working with people, by shifting the focus of the work from trying to understand problems to supporting the development of solutions.

Over five modules we will guide you through the approach from beginning to end. You’ll learn about the principles and underlying assumptions, and what it means to be strengths and solution focussed.

We’ll introduce key techniques and common challenges you may encounter – starting with goal setting (or establishing ‘best hopes’); moving on to introduce two key methods for helping people imagine and realise better futures for themselves (miracle questions and scaling questions).

You will learn to support your clients by helping them to build up a detailed picture of their life in which their best hopes have been realised; to encourage them to focus on what is already working, or has worked, in their lives; helping them to identify the strengths and resources, which frees them up to move towards their goals.

Length: five modules, Duration: 30 - 45 mins of study per module.
