Training for Those Working with Substance Users


Solution-focused Brief Therapy (for substance users)

Usual course length: 2-3 days

Courses can be tailor-made from the following elements:

  • Exploring SFBT’s key belief that prolonged ‘problem talk’ with clients will be unproductive
  • Empowering service users by focusing on when the problem isn’t there or has been less worrying – solution patterns
  • The techniques of SFBT, e.g. using ‘scaling questions’ to build and maintain progress, and asking the ‘miracle question’ to clarify goals
  • Deciding on SFBT’s usefulness to your own work through case studies and practice
All our our Substance Use courses are mapped to the relevant DANOS Units.
