THIS WEBINAR WILL NOT BE RECORDED
August 29th, 2023
10:00 AM - 4:45 PM EST
The world of therapy often directs clinicians, to focus on a person’s problems: What’s the diagnosis? What is the presenting problem? How do we work on “fixing” the problem using a treatment plan? What if instead of focusing on the problem, we focus on the solution? This workshop takes solution-focused counseling to another level.
In this interactive 6 hour workshop you will learn easy tools to help your clients: identify and state life dreams (long term life goals), discover hidden strengths, and identify the key supports that are needed to successfully achieve the identified dream. When a client can meet his/her life dream or even can see a clear road to attaining that dream, many problems often fall by the wayside.
Participants will examine real case scenarios and gain skills that will be useful to all areas of clinical practice. This training is highly interactive. Participants will work in groups or pairs during this training which involves some self-reflection. Zoom breakout rooms will be utilized during this highly acclaimed training.
