WS02 – Love the Questions: 5 Categories of Solution Focused Questions That Will Transform Your Practice
Try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.
This is a poem by Rilke and illustrates the power and importance of questions.
Since the Solution Focused Approach is a questions based process, it is essential that clinicians learn the art of asking the kinds of questions that lead towards sustainable questions in their clients’ lives. This means your learning has to go beyond theory and technique, instead being about language.
This workshop will be about this question process. The facilitator will demonstrate 5 different categories of SFBT questions showing how to ask such questions in a way that leads towards the kind of client responses that are likely to lead towards change.
- Describe the Solution Focused Approach in their work.
- Identify the core components that make Solution Focused questions more effective.
- Identify the difference between problem focused and Solution Focused questions.
