The Centre for Solution Focused Practice

Advanced Certificate in Solution Focused Practice Course

BRIEF offers an Advanced Certificate Practice Course (Level 3) which is organised into 6 monthly 2-day modules arranged over two academic terms.

The Course is designed to enable and to support those wishing to develop and to hone their SF skills to focus on the detail of practice in relation to their everyday work. The curriculum will closely follow the United Kingdom Association for Solution Focused Practice’s recently published Accreditation Criteria and so those participants interested in achieving official accreditation by the UKASFP will be well-prepared by this course.

The skills taught during this programme will include:

  • Client-led contracting taking cognizance of other legitimate stakeholders such as employers, safeguarding and other statutory authorities.
  • Developing detailed preferred future descriptions including descriptions of interactional behaviour.
  • Thorough detailing of what the client is already doing that might contribute to their hoped-for outcome.

While the course concentrates on developing practice skills, recommendations will be made about reading that can be carried out by participants to develop their understanding of the history and theory of SFP.

At the end of the course participants will have the opportunity to present a recording and transcript of a role-play session for informal assessment by course staff.

Applicants will need to have completed four days of training with BRIEF and to be in a position to apply their learning directly throughout the course.

The next course will begin in September 2020 and finish in March 2021. The dates will be confirmed soon.
