Date: Friday May 12, 2017
Time: 9-4pm
Framingham State University


This workshop will provide an overview of the fundamentals of the evidenced-based approach of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy. A special emphasis will be placed on how to use this approach to uncover resources and resilience factors in multi-stressed adolescents and their families, including those suffering from substance use disorders. Participants will learn how solution-building differs from problem-solving, learn practical tools to uncover a patient’s strengths and resources, and how to use a system’s perspective to utilize client’s resources, enhance goal negotiation, while increasing their hopes. The workshop is designed so participants will be able to immediately implement the practical skills learned.
