˜Your SFBT tip for December 2013:
Remember when you work with your clients, staff, patients, or students, the principles of a solution-focused approach means:
  • exploring for change – looking for what the client has done in between your sessions
  • highlighting their successes and progress – connecting to their continued positive change
  • asking the client to continue to explore for small changes or to do more of the same to work toward their desired goals.

Workshops update:
Thank you!! We had a fantastic time at our recent workshops in Calgary and Edmonton. We are so grateful for the learning opportunities we were able to offer, and in turn, gain from our skilled and knowledgeable participants. We would like to share a few remarks from our Solution Talk participants:
"It was a great learning experience. Understanding where the approach comes from makes it much more rich, as well as the practical examples provided during the training. Also, the idea of focusing on what works instead of what doesn't opened a new way of seeing counselling as well as opening a new perspective of my own. In addition, I believe that the instructors are passionate about what they do, which created a much rich experience. I would definitely take more trainings with Solution Talk − especially with Kelly and Denise. "

~Priscilla Coleff, Counsellor
British Columbia
" As a teacher, I have been to different types of professional development sessions and there have only been a handful that have left me inspired to enact immediate change. The Solution Talk session was everything I want this type of session to be; engaging, interactive, informative and immediately usable in my classroom or office. I felt at ease from the very beginning and the environment was such that I was comfortable to share with the group. I use the strategies every day and I plan on learning more about this approach as I think it empowers people in dealing with their issues. Again, I can't thank you enough for offering the session. I truly enjoyed it and I hope to take Level 2 in the future. "
