The Connie Institute Mission
Though the Connie Institute was founded due to our passion for using the Solution Focused Approach with couples and teaching professionals about doing that work, the mission of the institute has expanded beyond just working with couples. Our mission is to help practitioners master the language of this approach so that they can use it with any client and in any setting.
To accomplish this, we offer training services (both at your location and that we host) that are designed for attendees to truly become masters of this way of working and to enable professionals to engage even the toughest clients in a conversation about their preferred future instead of their problems.
Solution Building Couples Therapy
The purpose of The Connie Institute is to promote the use of the Solution Focused Brief Therapy in working with couples through the use of Solution Building Couples Therapy. Solution Building Couples Therapy (SBCT) is an approach to marriage counseling that is rooted in the Solution Focused Approach and allows couples to build relationships based on their successes and the factors that brought them together and make them work together. Based in the Dallas-Fort Worth area of Texas, The Connie Institute has provided training and workshops across Texas, throughout the country, and even over seas in places such as England, Scotland, Sweden, Canada, Poland, and Holland. We also offer a certification and mentorship program that is offered online.
The Connie Institute is also the global leader in training materials related to using the Solution Focused Approach and solution building in couples therapy. The training materials include solution focused book publications, research study results, audio and videos of sessions, and more.
News & Notes
The Association for Solution Focused Practitioners (ASFP) is now open!
The Connie Institute was founded back in 2012 with the mission to train clinicians to use the Solution Focused Approach with couples. Along the way we realized that not only is there a need for quality training not for this sort of work with couples, but for all of a SFBT work. So, we partnered with a team of great Solution Focused minds and created the ASFP.
Don’t worry, The Connie Institute will still exist and we will still be providing trainings for professionals to use this approach, but we will also offer an online mentorship program.
