Brigitte Lavoie on becoming cancer free with SF. In today’s episode, we talk with Brigitte Lavoie, M.P.s, Solution Focused therapist, trainer, supervisor and receiver of the SFBTA Insoo Kim Berg Memorial Award, about what we can learn from going through cancer for this situation now. Listen to what fascinates her with Solution Focus right now after her cancer episode in the last 1 1/2 years, how she applied Solution Focus practices to her life with cancer, how she knows that she had more good days than bad days, and how she used exceptions from the past to deal with the situation. Learn more about how to talk about the preferred future in a way that effectively supports you, Ellen Quick’s appropriate caution questions that helped Brigitte in her situation, and the miracle question with bad days. She highlights how everybody has good reasons for doing things and differences the letter she wrote to her daughter about all the things she admires about her made. Check out what she kept doing that helps her now with COVID19, the ten positive emotions by Barbara Fredrickson and the connections to Solution Focus, and the fact that we often underestimate our capacity to get through rough times. And have fun with the Challenge of the Week: Ask yourself: What kind of animal would I like to be? And when in your past were you already more like this animal?
