In this course, we explore cultural humility practices in Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). Dr. Adam Froerer, LMFT and Cecil Walker, LMFT give us actionable steps to integrating these two practices in our work with clients. In particular, they discuss ways clinicians can consider large social contexts in their work, while ‘making themselves small’ in pursuit of building therapeutic relationships that foster change.

If you get into a taxi, the driver doesn’t ask you where you’ve been, he asks you where you want to go. Solution Focused Brief Therapy focuses on how we want to move towards change in a purposeful way.
Solution Focused Brief Therapy starts out with one question: what are your best hopes? Hope is a pillar in this therapy approach along with change and how to string those two together. The shift is in the person: who that person is how they define themselves, how they may notice they are becoming the type of person we want to be.
Dr. Froerer explains SFBT as the same as talking to a server at a restaurant or a trainer at the gym. They ask, “what do you want?” And then Cecil Walker describes how looking at the answers and finding out what those words mean to the client. Our panelists walk us through the journey of hope and humility.
