Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT): A Comprehensive Introduction

Presented by: Dr. Jeff Chang


In this four-day workshop, Jeff will present a comprehensive, practice-oriented introduction to Solution-Focused Brief Therapy. You will learn the assumptions of the SF approach, which underlie the processes and attitudes of SFBT. Jeff will demonstrate how to expertly sequence and phrase SF questions, teach you how to both pace and invite clients’ motivation, develop homework tasks that clients will carry out, and know when to refrain from assigning  them. Participants will also learn how to track progress, plan for termination, and prevent relapse. Jeff will reserve time for participants’  goals and topics of interests. Most importantly, Jeff will go beyond the techniques and procedures of SFBT to kindle SF attitudinal postures and help participants develop a solution-focused ear for openings.

Day 1: Social Stories™ 10.2

This workshop will present a comprehensive approach on Social Stories™, an internationally recognized evidence-based strategy for learners with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Participants will come to discover the ever-expanding versatility and value of this incredible instructional strategy for the very first time or update their skills and understanding of Social Stories™. We will learn how to develop, write, and implement Social Stories™.


Day 2:  Social Context & Autism Spectrum Disorder: Breaking New Instructional Ground

The ability to gain meaning from social context is highly complex, yet is often taken for granted by those who quickly process this detailed and multi-faceted information with ease. This ground-breaking presentation uses lecture, demonstration, and activities to share a working definition of social context to provide a backdrop for exploring key issues in the education of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders. We will explore friendship, emotion regulation, social concepts and skills, and much more. Participants will leave with a wealth of straightforward intervention tools to teach the elusive social context curriculum to individuals with ASD.
