The Centre for Solution Focused Practice

Staying BRIEF in Manchester

BRIEF has been organising solution focused training programmes in Manchester for over 20 years. This special Staying Brief programme in Manchester will be of relevance to practitioners working with adults and to those working with children, adolescents and families.

As all those who are already familiar with SF will know the approach is certainly straightforward, there is no complexity in the model, and yet most will already also have realised that ‘doing it’ is more challenging than it initially appears. And of course at the heart of the practice is the framing of questions and in particular questions that take account of the client’s position and move the conversation in the direction of possibility. So at the heart of this two day programme will be solution focused questions and how we frame those questions. Two major activities will be designed to address this.

In addition this programme will give participants the opportunity to:

  • Explore applications
  • Practice staying solution focused in the face of challenging responses.
  • Review their own solution focused development.

As with all BRIEF Staying Brief programmes the specific content will remain flexible in order to fit the agendas of the participants and will take shape over the course of the two days. However it is likely that there will be a mixture of exercise, discussion and session review in addition to presentation by the course facilitator.

Are we the kill-joys of the therapeutic world?

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?
