This one day workshop is primarily aimed at clinicians working in the area of mental health. It provides clinicians with an alternative approach to their counselling skills that can be both brief and effective. It can be brief because it is future focused and because it works with the strengths of the consumer, making the best use of their resources. It can bring about lasting change precisely because it aims to build solutions rather than solve problems.
Using a solution focused approach is a simple idea, easy to implement with practice. This workshop allows participants to practice skills which will assist them to include a solution focused approach in their care planning and provision.
