Solution focused Therapy

Solution-focused Therapy is another brief therapy that has a strongly future focused orientation. As opposed to analyzing a problem and past issues associated with it, Solution Focused Therapy is goal directed and focuses on solutions to the problems that brought clients to therapy. It furthermore holds that the client is the expert who has the solution to his problems within. The role of the therapist is to help identify and draw attention to existing strengths and resources of the client, that is to point out choices that have worked in the past and encourage the client to do more of them. Likewise the therapist will also help to identify solutions that have not worked and encourage the client to discontinue them.
