Customized Agency Training

The Solution-Focused approach, while initially developed in a psychotherapy setting, can be effectively applied in many different human service settings, including mental health, social services, health care, education, and human resource management. Because of its brevity, positive and future focus, and collaborative nature, many organizations have found the Solution-Focused approach extremely helpful for their staff and even desirable as an overall organization-wide philosophy.

We offer customized training and consultation in evidence-based Solution-Focused Practices to agencies and organizations.  We work hard to meet your individualized needs and goals. We have provided training for many groups in such diverse settings as:

  • Hospitals and other Healthcare Settings

  • Business and Human Resource Management
  • Crisis Management
  • Palliative Care

We welcome the opportunity to talk with you and discuss your best hopes to ensure that our training will make a positive difference for your unique work environment.
