Solution-Focused Brief Therapy

Presented by Dr. Mollie Innocent-Cupid, LCSW on 04-12-2024 at 10 a.m. Pacific (1 p.m. Eastern) to 12 p.m. Pacific (3 p.m. Eastern)

Solution-Focused Brief Therapy is a short-term, goal-focused, and evidence-based therapeutic approach. It incorporates positive psychology principles and practices and helps clients change by constructing solutions rather than focusing on problems.

In this 2-hour interactive continuing education presentation for mental health clinicians, Dr. Mollie Innocent-Cupid, LCSW will cover both assessment and intervention for clients of all ages. Therapist participants will learn the foundation of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), the key principles of its theory, and the differences between SFBT and other common treatment approaches. This interactive training will include case examples and experiential prompts to apply assessment and intervention skills. The goal of this training is for participants to leave feeling confident and prepared to apply SFBT effectively in their clinical practice.

This introductory level continuing education webinar is designed to help mental health professionals:

  1. Identify key differences between Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) and other common approaches to mental health treatment.
  2. Describe at least two solutions-focused interventions (e.g. experiment invitations, searching for exceptions, previous solutions, compliments).
  3. Explain how to manage progress using scaling.

Statement of program material's accuracy, utility, and risks: This training is based on the theories established by Insoo Kim Berg and Steve de Shazer. Solution-Focused Brief Therapy is recognized as an evidence-based treatment modality at a global level. References will be provided to participants.

Dr. Mollie Innocent-Cupid is a licensed clinical social worker with over 15 years of experience working in the mental health field. She started her career working with women in a group home who were living with chronic and severe mental illness in New Jersey. Over the past decade, she has provided mental health treatment to individuals in their community, to children in schools, and to veterans in an outpatient setting. Mollie is particularly passionate about trauma-informed care and has received training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy.

While Mollie fully believes in the power of healing in the role of the therapist, she also strongly believes in a multifaceted and systemic approach to addressing the mental health problem that includes advocacy, social justice initiatives, training on cultural competence, and decreasing stigma with mental health awareness. Her doctoral research focuses on the sociological intersection between black immigrants and mental health within a racialized society. The discoveries from this research is what has inspired her to found Niche Counseling & Wellness.
