˜Your SFBT tip for January 2014:
It is the aim of the SF professional to support clients in thinking about and describing what is useful for them in moving toward positive change. To elicit these responses, ask questions like:
  • What did it take for you to make that change?
  • What helped you to make those changes?
  • How did you manage to successfully deal with that problem?

Solution Talk is proud to announce A Solution–Focused Approach With Children and Youth. This new and exciting workshop will be offered in February 2014. In addition to this advanced solution–focused concept, this workshop will also include a half–day presentation from our esteemed solution-focused colleague, Dr. Jeff Chang.
Solution Talk and Dr. Jeff Chang present: Beyond Technique: Listening for Openings and Thinking on your Feet
Over the last twenty–five years, Dr. Jeff Chang has developed a practical integration of narrative and solution–focused ideas. In this presentation, he highlights how it is important to go beyond learning interview techniques and how to, as Michael White said, " respond to responses."
Dr. Jeff Chang is Associate Professor in the Graduate Centre for Applied Psychology at Athabasca University and Director of the The Family Psychology Centre. He is frequently invited to teach workshops, and has presented his work in North America, Europe, Asia, and the Caribbean. He is a well–regarded clinical supervisor, and has supervised over twenty–five Provisional Registered Psychologists.
Audience: Youth care, mental health, social work, childrens' services, crisis intervention, group homes, residential treatment, probation officers, program administrators, domestic violence workers, nursing, psychology, group wilderness programs, instructors, criminal justice programs, teachers, and school principals.
Group and student rates are now available. Please email us at to learn more.
Workshops update:
Solution Talk is looking to add more great workshops in the 2014/15 training calendar. Your opinions and thoughts are important to us. Please drop us an email to let us know your solution–focused training needs, so that we can try to accommodate you and your work groups.
Remember, solution–focused techniques are not only for working with your clients and students. These skills are effective within teams and work groups to enhance morale and build team spirit! If you are looking for an excellent addition to your next work retreat, give us a call!
Many agencies require their staff to attend these workshops as part of their employment training.
