The Solution Focussed Mindset

Episode 26


In this episode we had such fun hosting Dr Jacqui von Cziffra-Bergs, an Educational Psychologist from Johannesburg, South Africa and teaches Solution Focused Therapy to psychologists, social workers, counsellors, teachers and organisations. Jacqui started the Solution Focused Institute of South Africa which is a training organisation that aims to teach and promote world class training in Solution Focused Therapy. Dr Jacqui von Cziffra-Bergs was an associate professor at the University of Johannesburg and still teaches at universities across the country on a consultancy basis. She has lectured extensively on Solution Focused Therapy throughout South Africa and in the United States. Dr Jacqui has written four books, her latest being “Solution Focused Brief Therapy and clients managing trauma” for Oxford University Press. She has also currently released “Creative Solution Building across Southern Africa” that shares how Solution Focused therapy is being implemented in different contexts such as medical settings, school settings, community projects, organisations and universities. Dr Jacqui is married and has two young sons that keep her feet firmly on the ground.

The value of this method is that focussing on what you want the solution to be as opposed to an emphasis on the problem, your time and focus is on developing action steps towards the solution and discovering the hero within your client.
