SFBT is a systemic and positively oriented approach to talk therapy, coaching, and self-empowerment, aimed at young people and adults. HADD's SFBT groups are practical, positive, and simple! As the name says, it’s about focusing on solutions rather than on problems. We do not emphasis what’s ‘wrong’ with people, we aim to identify what’s right! - to build on skills, enhance self-awareness and encourage problem-solving and peer support in order to learn about ADHD, the effects it has on the individual’s life, and figure out practical solutions to overcome specific challenges.
We have held a number of very successful groups. Participants said that it was a very positive experience for them in terms of an improved ability to focus and work set long term goals and also the significant positive outcomes that had occurred for them by the end of the course. They particularly valued the opportunity of participating in a group where all other members were grappling with the same challenge as themselves, namely ADHD.
