'The language of the Solution-Focused Approach'

~ The words we use to describe the change process will impact on what we do and how we do it ~

Workshop 10 / 09.30 - 10.00 / Friday June 15th 2018 / 

 Abstract

Words, language, description, these are key to Solution Focused Brief Therapy. The words we use to describe our work, the words that we use to describe the change process will impact on what we do and how we do it.
BRIEF has been focused on words for the past 25 years and this presentation will explore some of our key conclusions, those words which facilitate solution focused working and those which appear to get in our way.

Learning Objectives

 

This presentation will focus participants on the way that they describe their way of working and some of the conclusions that BRIEF has reached over nearly 30 years of practice.
