Solution Focused Training Programs

Due to the success of the SF approach within the centre, the Resilience Centre runs courses in the Solution Focused approach.

These courses may be the best courses you have ever attended due to the practical application to both your personal and professional lives.

The courses are designed to get you practicing the skills in class and draw on the expertise of the practitioners at the Resilience Centre who use SF to inform the preferred future and measure the process of healing during individual and group therapy.


The Solution Focused foundation courses are broken into three optional streams.

Each foundation course becomes a platform for advanced and applied courses within each stream, equipping, staff, practitioners, teachers and family members in skills for optimistic conversations.

Each foundation course has the equivalent of 1 day pre-reading and preparation ( on line) and two days face to face training. Each course is interactive, practicing skills in therapy, coaching and planning.

Therapy Stream: Solution focused training for counsellors, youth workers, mental health professionals, pastors, case workers and carers.
