Ben Furman workshop, Brisbane, Australia, 23 August 2017

Unique Outcomes proudly announces the return to Australia of Ben Furman, world renowned psychiatrist, Ericksonian family therapist and teacher of Brief Solution-focused therapy.

Join us for Ben’s only Australian workshop…

“A Masterclass in Brief Solution-Focused Practice”

A unique learning experience for seasoned therapists and counsellors.

Ben is Director of the Helsinki Brief Therapy Institute. For the past 2 decades he has travelled the world teaching a model of therapy, or coaching, where the emphasis is not on digging into problems in order to understand where they derive from, but on generating conversations that empower and inspire people to come up with their own unique solutions. In his home country, Ben is well-known for a talk show he used to host on Finnish national TV for several years. Ben is also the author of several professional as well as popular books. His most well-known book “It’s never too late to have a happy childhood”, has been translated into several different languages. He has a long-standing interest in working with trauma in a solution-focused manner. Together with his colleagues Ben has developed a simple, yet powerful, solution-focused method for helping children overcome emotional and behavioural problems known as Kids’Skills. Ben is a humorous presenter with a unique skill of conveying complex ideas to audiences in a simple and entertaining manner.

You will learn:

  • How to instil hope from the get-go
  • How to turn undesirable problems into desirable goals
  • How to see the client’s social network as a resource
  • How to think about the past as an asset rather than a liability
  • How to utilize the power of fantasy and imagination
  • How to use solution-focused questions effectively
  • How to respond when clients say “I don’t know”
  • How to find resources and how to utilize them
  • How to inspire clients’ own creativity

Prepare for short inspiring lectures, stimulation Q&A sessions, fun exercises, and impressive live demos. In previous visits to Australia, Ben has received rave reviews and we are expecting that this workshop will fill quickly. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to learn these methods from one of the originators.
