BSFT Essentials is a 3-day course from APT (a leading provider of Solution Focused Therapy training courses in the UK and Ireland). We bring this APT-accredited course to your own organisation, for maximum cost-effectiveness, and up to 15 people can attend. (2-day version and refresher courses are also available.)
Solution-Focused therapy can seem a refreshingly easy therapy to conduct, and to be the recipient of. This is because many of its techniques capitalise on circuits in the brain that already exist. Utilising these, rather than trying to develop new circuits by discussion and experimentation, often achieves results that are rapid, fundamental, and stable.
This course therefore teaches the principles and practice of brief solution-focused therapy in a way that delegates can - and will want to - use with their own caseload.
Mainly professionals who see patients 1:1 and want to become acquainted with brief, solution-focused therapy in a way in which they can use it.
The following topics are all included on the 3-day course. Certain topics don’t appear on the 2-day course, and these are indicated by an asterisk.
You will be registered as having attended the course, thereby gaining APT's Level 1 accreditation, and receive a certificate to this effect. The accreditation gives you access to online resources associated with the course.
Your registration lasts indefinitely, and your accreditation lasts for 3 years and is renewable by sitting an online refresher which also upgrades your accreditation to APT Level 2 if you are successful in the associated online exam.
Your accreditation is given value by the fact of over 100,000 people having attended APT training. See APT accreditation for full details.
