Behavioral health workforce shortages and increased demand for services have required mental health professionals and organizations to devise innovative service delivery and training strategies that are evidence-based, high quality, and sustainable. Listed below are a few popular hybrid training options. All hybrid training packages are customized to meet the individualized needs of behavioral health organizations.
Taste – Solution-Focused Skills and Practice for entire agencies provides the opportunity for all people within your organization to get a brief introduction and “taste” of SFBT. This course is open to unlimited participants. Behavioral health organizations including agencies providing integrated care often include primary care practitioners, administrators, executives, and other staff to give everyone a brief overview of the approach and consider whether more training may be of interest. This course offers 2CE credit/clock hours.
The live interactive Basic – Solution-focused Skills and Practice course combined with the self-paced course Solution Focused Brief Therapy: An Introduction to Clinical Practice for agencies is a good choice for clinicians interested in developing fundamental solution-focused brief therapy skills.

Some agencies interested in developing more in-depth skills take our most intensive self-paced course: Foundations of Solution-Focused Practice Online Intensive. Combining the Foundations course with our live interactive 12-hour skills and Basic – Solution-focused Skills and Practice course may be helpful for those wanting more intensive readings, lectures, video demonstrations, and clinical practice activities.
