FGCU Office of Continuing Education & Off-Campus Programs Presents Solution Focused Brief Counseling & Consultation Workshop

FORT MYERS, Fla. – The Office of Continuing Education & Off-Campus Programs at Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) presents Solution Focused Brief Counseling and Consultation (SFBC), a workshop targeted principally at school counselors, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, human services professionals and educators. SFBC uses a systematic, five-step approach in which clients, students and parents focus on solutions rather than problems. The workshop meets 8:30 a.m. to noon on two Saturdays, Sept. 10 and Oct. 8, at The Atrium, 8695 College Parkway, Suite 1181, Fort Myers; and costs $99 for both sessions.

     Solution Focused Brief Counseling and Consultation is instructed by Russell A. Sabella, professor of counseling in the College of Health Professions and Social Work at FGCU, and president of Sabella & Associates. Sabella has written numerous articles published in journals, magazines and newsletters; and has co-authored two books, “Confronting Sexual Harassment: Learning Activities for Teens,” (Educational Media; 1995) and “Counseling in the 21st century: Using Technology to Improve Practice” (American Counseling Association; 2004). He has practiced and trained thousands of professionals in Solution Focused Brief Counseling and Consultation for nearly 20 years.
