Becoming Accredited in Solution Focused Practice

Over the last few years, the UKASFP have introduced a system whereby practitioners can apply to be accredited in Solution Focused Practice.

This is really exciting for the Solution Focused practitioner community as it will showcase how quickly our skills work in an initial session and how much change can be observed through strict Solution Focused questioning.

Both our Certificate and Diploma courses strive to implement as much skills practice as possible with fellow learners and real clients allowing our learners to develop their skills against the accreditation criteria.

Foundation Course

Introduction to Foundation Course

Solution Focused Therapy enhances existing therapeutic approaches and can be used as an alternative to other therapies. This approach can be used by therapists or anyone involved in helping people to change their behaviours and attitudes, for example helping people lose weight or stopping smoking.

Our training provides an understanding of principles, assumptions and techniques used in SFBT and offers effective strategies and tips for working with clients, even those ‘difficult clients’. This approach has been used with trauma clients, those with Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Substance abusers and many more. You will be able to use your learning immediately when you return to your workplace or even in your personal life.

Certificate Course

Unit 1: Introduction to Solution Focused Language

Most solution focused conversations entail asking effective questions, rather than making statements or giving advice. We use appreciative, respectful curiosity to create opportunities for the other person (or group) to think creatively about how to progress towards their goals. This unit involves the learners in role play discovery, looking in depth at how the basic structure of a session can be extrapolated and the conversation co-constructed to create that preferred future that the clients seek.

Unit 2: Ethics and law

This training will benefit you personally and professionally by enhancing the necessary skills needed to give the very best service to those at risk of, or affected by, harm or abuse. The training equips you to provide safeguarding to protect and support the clients. The trainer provides a perfect blend of theory, invaluable working knowledge and experience, which will help develop the skills required to be put into safe practice.

We will cover topics including what abuse and safeguarding are, psychological and behavioural responses of those affected by abuse and those who perpetrate, roles and responsibilities of a multi-agency approach, civil criminal processes and how to deal safely with disclosures as a counsellor.

This is an interactive course, your views, experience, questions and opinions are very much welcome and appreciated.

Unit 3: Working with Children and Young People

This unit examines the development of differences between children, young people and adults and how this affects our work with them. It looks at both the biological and social influences of these age groups and the cultural differences between generations.

The Solution Focused skills learned in previous units examines how these can be creatively adapted to be most effective when working with young people. The module is full of discussions and tasks designed to understand the mindset of these clients, the current events that may have an impact on them and how we can support them towards their best hopes.

Unit 4: Advanced skills

Learning threads and appropriate questions are explored in greater depth.

This is an opportunity to hone the skills learned in the Foundation course and examine how self-awareness can enhance application of those skills, focusing on those that the learners would like to explore in more detail.

Solution focused conversations use responses to the clients’ answers that are appropriate to the quest for the preferred future. This unit involves the learners in role play discovery, looking in depth at how a session can be structured and the conversation co-constructed to create the image of the preferred future that the clients seek, incorporating flexibility and appreciating diversity. We will look at working with trauma and diversity of approach as well as combining the solution focused approach with other approaches.
