Introduction to the Course and the Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) Approach
Discover the foundations of what it takes to be a successful SFBT clinician – mainly the therapist’s belief in the client and their ability to heal. With that foundation, hope is possible for any situation.
Getting Started with Solution Focused Brief Therapy
Elliot Connie illustrates the power of the SFBT process through engaging instruction and real-client stories. You’ll discover how SFBT can lead to rapid change, even when your clients seem resistant and won’t answer your questions – and learn the principles that can make you successful with any client case.
Using Clients' Best Hopes for Effective Outcomes Right from the First Session
Discover how starting with the desired outcome is key to quick and transformative change. Elliot Connie will not only teach you the principles and questions to ask your clients, he’ll show you how to ask the questions and what stumbling blocks to avoid. You’ll see him in action with a client who wants to quit smoking and experience the questions he asks to draw out hope and motivation from the client’s own life.
The Resource Talk
Walk step-by-step through the process of building client resources, which are key components to change. Join Elliot Connie in two client sessions to see how he quickly forms a connection with the client. Then, through intentional and engaging question-asking, learn how he’s able to uncover resources that allow a therapist to move beyond being a problem-solver to becoming a true healer.
The Honeymoon Talk
Get a front-row seat to see how SFBT can restore love between struggling relationships. Elliot Connie will teach you how to use details from the beginning of the couple’s love story to help the clients reconnect and build the foundation for a better future. You’ll experience this work in-action and watch a couple on the brink of separation literally fall back in love, right before your eyes.
Preferred Future Session
Experience what Elliot Connie describes as the most important part of SFBT – your clients’ visualization of their preferred future. You’ll learn the specific types of questions to ask, then observe as Elliot Connie leads all three client sessions to rapid change that they couldn’t have imagined when they entered his office. See how he helps a woman quit smoking after years of trying; how he guides a young man to a new, more fulfilling life; and how he reignites a couple’s relationship that was on the verge of splitting up. Witness quick change happen in real time, and see how SFBT offers impactful, life-changing results that you won’t find with other psychotherapies.
Scales and Follow-up
Discover how to use scales as a technique to help clients see their session progress and find opportunities for growth. Then Elliot Connie will teach you how to end sessions in an impactful and meaningful way that keeps your clients’ autonomy intact. He’ll also guide you in what to do when a client asks for a follow-up session, including how to amplify your clients’ strengths for greater results.
