Train as a Solution Focused Practitioner, Brief Therapist or Coach with BRIEF. Our comprehensive Course Programme offers the most flexible route to becoming an effective enabler of lasting change with individuals, families, groups, teams and whole organisations. If your job is as a therapist, counsellor, coach or if you work 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 an Advanced Staying Brief Course or one of the Special Interest Courses.
BRIEF currently offers training courses in Brighton, Bristol, Cardiff, Manchester/Salford, Oxford as well as London.
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 (or Coaching).
For those wanting to develop their practice even further BRIEF offers the BRIEF Advanced Certificate in Solution Focused Practice Course. This course is delivered over two terms, in 6 2-day modules. The design of this course is radical and fits with the BRIEF belief in constantly asking the question 'what is the least that people need?'. The course is specifically designed to meet the criteria for accreditation developed by UKASFP. The Advanced Certificate builds on the experience gained by running the BRIEF Diploma over 13 years, a course which came to be recognised by the Solution Focused international community to be second to none. Many who completed the diploma have gone on to become Solution Focused trainers and consultants in their own right. Over the years the diploma attracted participants from the whole of the UK, from Switzerland, from Ireland, from Germany, from Lebanon, from Denmark and from Cyprus, whilst the first Advanced Certificate has our first participant from Italy.
2 Day Foundation Course: Solution Focused Practice
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 put their newly-learnt skills into practice.
The Solution Focused approach has been adopted enthusiastically within the field of Education. This 2-day programme is particularly appropriate for all working in and around Primary and Secondary Education. The course will be sufficiently practical for each participant to be able to begin using Solution Focused skills on their return to work. It will also provide a basis for continued self-development.
Evan George considers two words that are foundational in Solution Focused Practice - the words trust and belief.
Is belief the same as trust or is belief a little different from trust? Does trust encapsulate belief or does the idea of belief add something independently in our work?
