Outline
The principles of Solution Focused Therapy invite the practitioner to look at their clients in a very positive and resourceful way. As soon as you start viewing and considering your client as a strong, resourceful person that is coping you automatically start to change your language and the questions you ask in therapy. This mindset also alters the way in which you view yourself as therapist and ultimately enhances the relationship you build with the client and the therapeutic process. This online workshop will enable the practitioner to earn 10 CPD Psychology points whilst still working in their practice. It is an interactive experiential workshop that includes an hour lecture, a Solution Focused Therapy article to read, a workbook with practical exercises and a questionnaire to be filled in.
