In a nutshell, BSST emphasizes being useful vs. helpful. People are experts in their own lives. In “self –contained” conversations, the counsellor/therapist meets the person outside of their problem seeing people in relationship to their problem vs. ‘having’ or ‘being’ the problem. Meaningful difference is seen as possible and actionable. People have knowledge and, as counsellor/therapists, BSST embraces the skill of curiosity and inquiry. This lunch and learn will look at the key concepts of BSST, explore “listening with a brief ear” and illicit conversation that asks how discovering the “counter story” creates agency and opportunity for hope, growth and change.
