One of my greatest passions is to help current and future mental health professionals to find practical and immediately useful new ways of working with clients. I often do speaking engagements and workshops for students, organizations and groups of professionals who are interested in learning about the solution focused approach, and it’s use with clients. I have done workshops and trainings for students at UT Arlington and SMU, I’ve also presented to both students and staff at various public and private schools in the area, including conducting in-service trainings for teachers and counselors. Below are some of the workshops I currently offer, and that can be tailored to your organizations specific needs.
