Solution Focused Practice: The BRIEF Approach

Full days training by Evan George on Sunday 25th March

Evan George is one of the founders of BRIEF in the UK. This one-day programme will introduce participants to the BRIEF approach to Solution Focus thinking and to the key elements of practice within the approach. SF is a flexible, collaborative and empowering approach that can be used with parents, adults and adolescents, with couples and families, and in group-work. The approach can be used both formally in ‘intervention’ sessions and also informally in short conversations, as well as in meetings. The approach fits well with principles of equal access and has a strong capacity to build cooperation and partnership, including in statutory work and with ‘reluctant clients’. This is a tailored workshop for a maximum of 24 people in a comfortable and friendly environment running from 9:30am - 4:30pm. The workshop costs £120.00 and includes the following:
