This follow-up Solution-Focused Brief Therapy training is an extension of the basic course.

This training expands on these and provides more opportunities for practice, and discussion. While the participants will help to design the the training together, the training will include a brief review of the fundamentals, a full session video with discussion, and a full session roleplay. The second day is planned to give the particpants opportunities to practice. It’s recommended that participants have either completed the basic course or its equivalent, have a good grasp of SF concepts, and are using the model in their own practice.
