If your job is as a therapist, coach or in any field where your task is to create positive change any of our courses will enhance your performance.
Ideally you should begin your training with a 4 day Foundation Course but if you do not have the time then a 2 day Foundation will get you started. If this turns out to be the right way for you to work you can build your skills by attending one of the more advanced Staying Brief Courses or one of the Special Interest Courses.
Complete 8 days of BRIEF training to fit your personal interests and timescale and on submission of a satisfactory essay you will be awarded the BRIEF Certificate in Solution Focused Practice.

SF Practice - 4-day Foundation Programme
Four day foundation course in Solution Focused practice. This 'flag-ship' programme has been the introduction to Solution Focus for many of the UK's leading practitioners. Exciting, energising and inspiring many participants can't wait to get back to their work to use the ideas.
Brief Therapy follow-on courses are an essential part of solution focused skills development. They are intended for professionals already trying to put solution focused brief therapy into practice in their everyday work but who, like us all, are finding areas of difficulty.
What is the status of 'body language' in the SF approach. We know that the words we use are only a small part of the way that we communicate and that our understanding of those words in general conversation is mediated through our processing of 'body language'. So how do SF practitioners think about this?
Chris Iveson is leading teacher of solution-focused focused therapy and one of the founders of Brief in London. He was interviewed by psychiatrist Ben Furman during his teaching trip to Helsinki in October 2015.
