This course's purpose is to assist participants in an online group format to practice and discuss the application of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) to their own and each others cases and practice. The course is not supervision; that is, the course instructor takes no responsibility for client outcomes. Participants will serve as a peer consultation group to each other as they sharpen their skills in SFBT practices to initiate and sustain solution-building conversations in their practices with cases, colleagues, and beyond. Course participants are required to present two new or early-on cases for ongoing discussion. Because cases sometimes finish in fewer than the weeks allotted for the course and because clients sometimes stop coming to sessions, participants are required to "replace" these cases. Ideally, one case would be with an individual and one would be with a couple or family. "Cases" may also include supervision, coaching, and other forms of consultation. "Client" is defined broadly in this course. Clients include both volunteers and those mandated to treatment. Clients may also include those wishing life coaching, organizations wishing consultation, supervise-es, and other individuals or groups who may benefit from the SFBT approach. The focus of each session is guided although the course will provide flexibility for each participant's desires for peer consultation. Updates on each case will be presented every other week according to the topics current to the time period. Recognizing that solution-focused work does not always follow an exact outline or sequence, participants may choose to present aspects of solution-building practices out of session sequence as their needs require. In addition to work on their own, actual cases, participants will respond to each other's cases, providing practice in thinking through solution-focused principles and practices. Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
