Solution-Focused Brief Counseling
       Event Description
Gerald B. Sklare, EdD, LPCC (Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor), is author of Brief Counseling That Works, a best selling, "how to" book on solution-focused brief therapy, now in its 3rd edition (2014). Dr. Sklare has conducted more than 150 workshops and presentations on the topic in the United States and abroad, and he has practiced in school settings and in private practice using this approach. Dr. Sklare received training in solution-focused therapy from the founders of the approach, Steve de Shazer and Insoo Kim Berg.
Those attending this day-long workshop will come away with the knowledge and skills needed to facilitate the evidence-based solution-focused therapy approach that typically leads to quick positive change. Using presentation, discussion, and active role-play practice, this one-day experiential workshop prepares participants to implement the five-step solution-focused model. The videos and stories that Dr. Sklare shares from his own cases make the content “real” and help attendees recognize how they can use the approach with their own clients.
