What is Solution Focused Therapy?

Solution Focused Therapy is a brief therapy that is future oriented, directed by goals that are clear and realistic, and focuses on solutions rather than the problems that brought clients to seek therapy.  This approach assumes that all clients have some knowledge of what would make their lives better, even though they may need help describing the details of their better life, and that everyone who seeks help already possesses at least minimal skills necessary to create solutions.

 

Tools Used in Solution Focused Therapy:

Common techniques used in Solution Focused Therapy include:

  • Looking for previous solutions to support you in building on strengths

  • Searching for exceptions to the problem

  • Questions focused on the present and future

  • Looking towards possible alternatives

  • Highlighting positive behaviors

 

What does Solution Focused Therapy Help With?

Solution Focused Therapy can be used for a wide variety of concerns affecting individuals, couples, and families. Common issues include depression, anxiety, behavioral issues, relationship problems, family conflict, and stress management.
