Solution Focused Brief Therapy for Clients who Stutter - a taster!
Speaker: Ali Berquez, MSc, PG Dip CT (Oxon), BRIEF Cert. SF Practice
Date: January 29, 2020
Time: 11am-12:30pm Eastern Time (4.00 – 5.30pm GMT)

Description: Solution Focused Brief Therapy is a short-term psychotherapeutic approach. It supports clients and clinicians to pay attention to a client’s strengths and resources, helps them to focus on what is going well and frames conversations in a positive direction. The session will give participants a taster of its application to work with people who stutter. We will explore how to identify what clients want from the therapy process, and what helps them move towards their desired outcomes. The webinar will include video examples.

Target Audience: Speech-Language Pathologists
