Course Description:


There has been greater awareness of solution focus brief therapy (SFBT) since its inception in 1982. It is common for SFBT to be included in survey courses in both undergraduate and graduate social work programs. The difficulty is finding trainers who have the experience and training in order to teach SFBT. The basic solution-focused brief therapy training is a 2 and ½ days course.
