BRIEF will be offering four 2-day SF training modules in Wales, in Cardiff, between October 2018 and April 2019. This marks the enormous growth in interest in Solution Focus throughout Wales in both children, family and adult services, in which BRIEF has been delighted (and proud) to have played a part.
The programme will start in October 2018 and will complete in April 2019.
The dates are as follows:
October 24 & 25: Foundation Programme for those new to the approach with Harvey Ratner
November 22 & 23: Staying Brief with Harvey Ratner
January 24 & 25: Staying Brief with Evan George
April 04 & 05: Staying Brief with Evan George
All these modules will take place in Cardiff and the venue will be in Cardiff University.
The first module is a Foundation module whilst the others will build skills and familiarity and can either be taken as a programme or can be ‘purchased’ individually. For those of you who want to apply for the BRIEF Certificate in SF Practice 8 days of training on BRIEF courses is required. If you have completed 2 days already you could join the second module, if you have completed four days the third and so on.
There will be reading made available to you before and after each of the modules to support your exploration of this way of working and there will be web-based support.
The cost of each module is £275.00 + VAT (330.00). If you or your organisation book and pay for all four modules together there will be a discount of £100.00.
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.
Coaching often presents itself as radically different from therapy or counselling. But is it? Aren't the similarities more significant than the differences when we think about the foundational assumptions? Evan George proposes that the truly significant distinction is that between problem-focused and solution-focused approaches whether the context of application is coaching or counselling or therapy.
