The education plan consists of an interaction between teaching, exercises and examples, as well as the work with the film material you bring from your practice. You are presented with the basic assumptions in the solution-focused approach just as we review the many techniques for engaging others in conversations. You will get acquainted with, how the solution-focused approach understand problems and humans, basic assumptions that distinguish the solution focused approach from other approaches in the field. Alongside this, and to support the theoretical element, you will work with the client's preferred future, the various types of questions, scales and other solution-focused principles and techniques.

Each module consists of two steps. The first part is self-study, where you can download articles, tasks and exercises, and see it when it suits you. In the second step, you’ll participate in training sessions online at Zoom, where you connect to other students, do exercises and discuss some of the tasks. Each time there will be a presentation from the teacher.

Examination & Certification

1) You upload a recording of solution-focused practice from your everyday life and that you believe represents what you have learned at DLI. In order to pass the examination, you must demonstrate that you have the ability to engage others in conversation about how life looks when the problem has diminished through solution-focused methods. To ensure the learning and development perspective, the feedback is built up in ways that lead to three or four questions or statements that allow you to work on the work you have chosen to present as your exam project.

2) Next, you formulate the ideas and reflections that follow from the first part of the examination. Thus, the examination not only evaluates your knowledge of and use of basic solution-focused principles and techniques, but also your ability to reflect on one's own practice in a solution-focused framework.

Accreditation is given by documented 100-hour solution-focused practice within one year, received supervision as required at the current Level and passed the exam. To ensure that everyone has the opportunity to achieve this, one can go to the exam at 2 different times within a 3 month period. Thus, each level can range from 9 to 12 months.
