For those who want to learn the basics of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, the SFBTA is sponsoring this intensive workshop provided by experienced SFBTA clinicians, researchers, trainers, and writers. This workshop is intended for those who have little or no prior solution-focused experience or training and who want to learn the philosophy, assumptions, and fundamentals of the approach so that they can better enjoy the conference. Expect a mix of presentation, discussion, and practicing solution-focused skills.

Habits come in all forms; substance dependence, problematic gambling, overeating, procrastinating. Solution-Focused Brief Therapy takes a different, more empowering, stance to addressing habits and addictions. This workshop will explore what works and how we can effectively work with clients to transform these behaviours. Join us for a day of discussion, role play, and learning.

(Room # KC 306)
We would like to invite everyone to spend the day talking about several topics pertaining to SFBT research and practice, and focusing on ways the two areas can be more collaborative. The research meeting will consist of presentations by students and SFBTA Research Committee members on the latest process and outcome research and an update on the current status of the empirical base on SFBT. Breakout group discussion will also provide an opportunity to discuss the current challenges of linking SFBT research and practice. Various research materials and resources will also be provided for attendees.
