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.

PRICE: £180.00 (including VAT)

Unit 3 Personal Development and Ethics 19th & 20th  November 2022

PD
A key aim of Personal Development is to expand and nurture experiential learning i.e., learning through experience. Learners will have an opportunity to enhance their awareness of personal processes in relation to self and others and to develop the capacity to be reflective, creative, and imaginative in their therapeutic work – key attributes of a Solution Focused practitioner.

Ethics
Case studies and discussions about ethical dilemmas challenge the learners to examine their own understanding of the role of a practitioner within the constraints of professional life.

Unit 4 Advanced Skills – 10th & 11th December 2022

Solution focused conversations help clients think creatively about progress towards their preferred futures. This unit involves the learners in role play discovery, looking in depth at how the basic structure of a session can be developed and the conversation co-constructed to imagine the clients’ preferred future. The role play will explore workplace counselling and coaching as well as personal counselling.

There is a critical analysis thread through all four units of experiential learning with models of reflection, incorporating hope streams pre-and post-unit activities.
