4 Day Foundation Course: Solution Focused Practice in Manchester

BRIEF has been organising Solution Focused training programmes in Manchester for over 25 years.

Whilst the 2-day Foundation Course and the Advanced: Staying Brief course can be taken separately, and they are designed to stand alone, they can also be taken together, thereby approximating to a 4-day Foundation course and every year some participants will choose to complete both programmes consecutively.

The first 2 days will cover an introduction to Solution Focus, the key elements of practice and an overview of session structures whilst the second module focuses on the detailed application of the approach and the construction of the questions.

As all those who are already familiar with Solution Focus 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 the Advanced: Staying Brief 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 Advanced: 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.
