Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) Interventions for Self-Care: Helping the Helper and Client Navigate Trying Times
Original Recording Date :
Length: 1.5 hours


Course Format

Recorded webinar.


In the workshop, Social Workers, Mental Health Therapists, and other helpers, will learn Solution Focused Tools in order to assist themselves in actual, tangible practices of self-care that can be done in the moment. Beyond “drink more water” and “get more sleep” participants will leave with interventions, handouts, and tools that they can use with themselves, and with their clients (or patients) in the moment to reduce stress, take care of themselves, and find pathways forward through distressing barriers.

Learning objectives:

  1. Use Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SBFT) List-making as a Self-Care and Distress Tolerance Skill/Tool
  2. Use self-scaling questions to determine where they are in a trying moment, where they would like to be, and to then develop a pragmatic three step plan to get there.
  3. Practice the 10% Better Question, Exception Questions, and identify how to use these SFBT questions to effectively promote self-care, reduce rigid/black and white, or all or nothing thinking, and get through distressing times.
  4. Use SFBT journaling and tracking methods to move themselves and their clients forward, to ensure that they continue to move forward on the scale toward their desired goals and objectives, including taking care of themselves and others.

Research: Research on Solution Focused Brief Therapy can be found on Solution Focused Brief Therapy Association and Google Scholar.

Target Audience: social workers, mental health practitioners, creative arts therapists, marriage and family therapists, psychologists, and other interested individuals.
