Solution-Focused Brief Therapy Training Programs Available Online


Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) examines the philosophical foundation of social constructivism, successful termination criteria in goal negotiations and an approach to interviewing for solutions.

We offer two noncredit online programs and have participants from all over the world, including the U.S., Australia, Europe, Asia and South Africa. A true community of professionals has been established to learn, discuss and practice the current theories and strategies of SFBT.

The UWM programs may be applied toward the 50-hour training requirement for the International Solution Focused Practitioner Certificate program in Solution Focused Brief Therapy. For details regarding the IASTI, please see the information at the bottom of this page under resources.
