Education Description

This presentation will introduce participants to The Diamond Approach (Connie & Froerer, 2022) of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy. The presenter will cover each of the components necessary to carry out a session from this approach, namely, 1) acquiring a desired outcome/transformation, 2) developing a coconstructed description of the desired transformation with details from the history, resources, and a preferred future, and 3) closing a session in a way that is meaningful and that honors the client’s autonomy and agency. Participants will watch recordings of sessions from this approach and have in-depth discussions about how this therapy is carried out. Finally, participants will have several opportunities to practice the skills needed to do this work.
