BRIEF Summer School

August 13, 2018 - August 17, 2018

An intensive, multi-faceted learning event for solution focused practitioners at all levels to develop their skills and have fun in nearly equal measure. Since BRIEF was established in 1989 every year has seen a change in how we do and how we teach solution focused brief therapy. More than twenty five years on our passion is undimmed and our pursuit of a dynamic minimalism is as committed as ever. Year by year we have questioned every aspect of our practice and our thinking behind it, we have experimented by dropping what we think might be unnecessary, sometimes to return to what we have dropped and sometimes to leave it behind.

Each time a particular practice has been discontinued we have found ourselves attending more closely to other aspects of our conversations with clients. So far, there has always been something to question and something new to learn. This Summer School and those who join us will become part of BRIEF’s journey.
A developing programme

The exact content and shape of the week will be drafted much closer to the time and what actually happens will depend on the interactions between all involved. BRIEF’s training has always been participant-centred. We see solution focused brief therapy as a craft – something that can only be learned by doing and where each doing leads to new possibilities for practice. There is no end to what we know, only a continuing journey.
