Extraordinary learning opportunity planned for late June

You are invited to participate in an extraordinary learning opportunity:   Solution-Focused Brief Therapy: Creative Applications in Community-Based Settings.

This training features leading thinkers and practitioners in the field who will guide attendees through a number of workshops designed to build skills and confidence in this effective approach to working with families.   Those who should attend this event include:

  • Social workers
  • School-based counselors, parent coordinators, and teachers
  • Social service agency personnel
  • Professionals in mediation and restorative justice
  • Juvenile justice and criminal justice system professionals
  • Outreach and engagement staff
  • Therapists and psychologists
  • Law enforcement
  • Youth/gang violence prevention and intervention staff

This training institute is being held in Washington, DC from June 29 - July 2, 2010.    Professionals from across the globe will convene to improve their skills and learn from their international, national, and local peers.

Solution-Focused Brief Therapy is inherently strength-based and holistic in the way it engages families.   While developed initially as a therapy model, it has transferred well to many different areas of community work.   Its combination of looking forward while helping people recognize their strengths and learn from their successes is a perfect fit for the development of family plans, street-level outreach, adult reentry counseling, job readiness training, and family group conferences.   The possibilities are endless!

Please consider attending this event – it will be well worth the effort.
