˜Your SFBT tip for July 2014:
Becoming a detective is an analogy we use in SFBT to help clinicians think differently when working with our clients and the relationships they are offering us. Remember, you are seeking out the times when positive change is happening for the client and amplifying these exceptions. "What we focus on is what we amplify!" We are encouraging our clients to explore these exceptions. But remember, this does not mean we are directing them to follow these "clues," instead, as said by Insoo Kim Berg, we are "tapping them on the shoulder" to gently guide them in another direction.

Remember, solution-focused techniques are not only for working with your clients. 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.
NEW! Practice, practice, practice...
We learned a while ago that while the Solution-Focused approach appears simple on the outside, developing your own style with these techniques is not as easy as it first seems! We have been studying and practising this approach for many years, and we continue to learn something new to enhance our practice. Therefore, we are offering opportunities for past participants to contact us with their questions and "brainstorm" how to continue to practice your work with a Solution-Focused stance.

Call us today at 403-287-8707 or email us at to learn more.
