Anxiety, especially in its more chronic and unassuming forms, is a common thread that runs through the mental fabric of modern society. Lots of clients come to us wanting answers, wanting cures, or wanting permanent fixes, and we can feel pulled as clinicians to provide concrete solutions to our clients’ presenting concerns, especially when they are in the act of suffering.

Learn to use solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT) integrated with mindfulness skills and techniques to effectively support and treat clients challenged with various forms of anxiety. Discover how this unique integrative skills-based approach can help clients manage unabated anxious thoughts and heightened somatic symptoms that trigger increased cortisol production. Help clients learn how to understand anxiety as a part of the human experience to be solution-managed, not “cured”, moving them toward a place where they can reduce the impact of anxiety on their daily living.Transform your clinical toolset with this unique anxiety management approach that will give you the confidence to effectively treat the growing epidemic of post covid anxiety.

 

In addition to the below Objectives, this training will also touch on and help learners accomplish the following:

  • The brief history of Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT).
  • The difference between problem solving and solution building and how that moves clients toward treatment goals more efficiently in the treatment of anxiety.
  • Define a client in SFBT; especially with regard to anxiety.
  • Identify which interventions and questions fit in the three parts of the skeleton.
  • Learn different approaches to mindfulness practices and how they can be integrated into the SFBT interventions.
  • Learn and practice the nuances of language needed to effectively use SFBT with clients that experience trauma.
  • Name and describe “The trifecta” to learn this approach to decrease symptoms of anxiety.
