Diversity Statement

The Institute for Solution-Focused Therapy (ISFT) is committed to respecting diversity and understands the importance a diverse input has on the content it creates.

While the ISFT is currently a small organization run by a few industry-professionals, we are ever-working to ensure the content that we provide is respectful of all individuals regardless of their age, gender, gender identity, race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, disability, language, and socioeconomic status.

Our Authors and Instructors at present, have the unique experiences of traveling the world to present their Solution-Focused teachings. In their vast global experience they have gathered invaluable feedback from a diverse group of individuals. Each experience they have had has helped to create the content provided by the ISFT. Each course is evidence-based and information is provided using the most up-to-date research in the field. We are fortunate to be in a position again with the new online platform, to reach students on a global scale and are eager to receive the diverse input they will provide.

The ISFT understands that each individual will experience the courses offered in a different way and provides ample opportunities for feedback at the end of each course through a course evaluation. Each course evaluation is saved in the ISFT records system. Members of the Program Committee meet regularly to address any issues that may have come up in the course evaluations for the month, and work to incorporate the feedback shared back into the courses we provide. The ISFT takes any and all feedback seriously and understands that the person providing it offers a unique perspective that must be taken into account.

ISFT believes that in understanding any challenges surrounding diversity we will continually work toward the goal of inclusion. We believe that in understanding these challenges we will ensure we are always working toward a goal of inclusion. Unfortunately, some barriers in our inclusion of a diverse student population are unavoidable as an online institute, such as access to a computer and a stable internet connection.

As we open our courses and gather feedback from both course evaluations as well as inquiries from potential students our hope is to continually update our programming. The ISFT understands that the goal of “diversity” is a never-ending one. We understand that we are the ones responsible to actively listen to our students and incorporate their feedback. We understand that feedback may change over time, and we must adapt to ensure we are holding ourselves to the highest standards.
