The Centre for Solution Focused Practice

Foundation Programmes

BRIEF specialises in short courses aimed at giving experienced professionals additional skills as well as helping to equip those newer to the field with some of the key skills they need to help them to do their jobs better. Many simply adapt these skills to their existing ways of working while others go on to make the Solution Focused approach their core method. The great majority of those using the approach in Britain have learned their initial skills on a course delivered by BRIEF.

Solution Focus is a flexible approach that can be adapted to working with individuals, couples, groups, families and teams. It is useful in short conversations in passing as well as more formally structured conversations. It is used by counsellors, by therapists, by coaches, mentors, managers, facilitators, mediators. It is used widely across the fields of education, health, and welfare as well as increasingly throughout the corporate sector – everywhere in fact where people want their conversations to make a difference.

The four and two-day programmes are designed to be as enjoyable as they are informative, as engaging as they are useful. All participants should leave these courses with an understanding of the Solution Focused approach and with clear ideas about how to put it to work in their own context with the people with whom they work. Many participants also leave with added enthusiasm for their work and, they regularly tell us, more energy. This energy and enthusiasm seems to be linked, they suggest, with a renewed faith and belief in the capacities of their ‘customers’ and from finding themselves more in touch with their own talents, abilities and key capacities.

Trusting or believing or trusting and believing?

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?
