Certification of trainees
IASTI provides, as a service to the trainees of its member Institutes, three levels of certification in the Solution-Focused model.
The examinations at each level of certification follow training in the Solution-Focused model as originally developed at Brief Family Therapy Center (BFTC) by Steve de Shazer and Insoo Kim Berg and the rest of the team at BFTC (De Shazer, 1988, 1991, 1994; de Shazer and Berg, 1992). The training and examination may also include later developments and literature of the Solution-Focused model used in Solution-Focused practices in a variety of contexts and clients.
The IASTI member institutes are committed to providing high quality training and supervision in the Solution-Focused model. To ensure that the member institutes are allowed flexibility to design and develop training programs, the member institutes are trusted and encouraged to collaborate with non-IASTI member institutes, trainers and supervisors who can deliver a high quality training and supervision. IASTI member Institutes may count these hours toward a trainee’s level of certification.
All current IASTI Institutes can choose to retroactively certify former trainees at the Institute’s discretion, however this certification must be done prior to January 1, 2014. The current trainers at the member Institutes are qualified trainers.
