Why Use Solution Focus Brief Therapy (SFBT)?

The Introduction to Solution Focused Brief Therapy CPD Course will give you the starting blocks to introduce this modality into your work.  It can be used with individuals, couples, families - at anytime! A Solution Focused approach is proven as effective and concern’s itself primarily with creating a desired reality and achieving this through the use of simple future solution focused questioning techniques.

If you have ever felt 'stuck' with clients, then this is a fantastic resource & skill to use to move your client/s forward with hope and purpose.

SFBT can stand alone as a therapeutic intervention, or it can be integrated into other therapy styles and modalities. It is used to help people of all ages and a variety of issues, including child behavioural issues, family dysfunction, domestic or child abuse, addiction, and unhealthy relationships. Though not a cure for psychiatric disorders such as depression or schizophrenia, using good SFT questions may help improve quality of life for those who suffer from these mental health conditions.
