Solution-Focused Practice: Using Solution-Focused Thinking in Challenging Situations

It’s not always easy to differentiate between a problem vs a solutions mindset.

Most of us like to think that we’re positive, proactive, and solutions-oriented in our thinking……but how often do you find yourself get caught up in the problem and never even reach the point of looking for a solution?

Attend this half-day online workshop to explore ‘Solution-Focused’ thinking and how shifting your thinking can make a tremendous difference in your interactions with your clients. Experience the ‘Solution-Focused’ approach in action through demonstrations and exercises using 6 concrete tools.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Recognise the unique aspects of solution-focused thinking and differentiate it from problem-focused models;
  • Identify three concerte tools that would be most effective in your work setting that you can immediately begin to use with your clients, and
  •  Troubleshoot specific work setting scenarios and explore how the three tools they identify in number two above can possibly resolve current roadblocks.

Acknowledgement

LEAD acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land we gather and work on, and the land that you are on while visiting our website. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the cultures and hopes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the nation. A better understanding and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures develops an enriched appreciation for Australia’s cultural heritage and can lead to reconciliation. This is essential to the maturity of Australia as a nation and fundamental to the development of an Australian identity. Understanding and respect are guiding principles of LEAD’s Reconciliation Action Plan.
