Due to limited resources or time, our role of supporting others as counsellors and helpers is often brief. That is why it is essential to have the skills to explore meaningful goals and achieve practical advancements in a short period of time. Solution-focused therapy (SFT) is a short-term, goal-oriented counselling approach that seeks to help clients by focusing on solutions rather than problems. This workshop provides an overview of the SFT framework and explores its strengths and limitations. Participants will learn practical strategies for helping others reach achievable goals and gain an increased confidence and capacity for supporting others when there are time constraints.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion, participants should be able to:

  • List strengths and cautions of solution-focused therapy
  • Identify practical, solution-focused strategies
  • Illustrate the elements of effective goal setting
  • Demonstrate steps to match relationship building with goal setting
