The Recovery Education Unit present Guy Shennan
A 2 day workshop on Solution Focused Practice
29th February + 1st March 2016

This is a 2 day workshop for people who are interested in developing their specialist skills to offer short term solution focused approaches in practice.
People should be working in a mental health setting (e.g. nurses or social workers) and have direct contact with
service users.
Solution focused practice is based on a way of talking with people that leads towards change. It originated in the world of therapy but has long since expanded into all contexts where a practitioner’s job is to help an other.
The course will develop an understanding of the principles of solution focused practice and introduce skills to use in practice.
