Solution-Focused Therapy: Focusing on the Positives


This method focuses on the positives and strengths of the persons involved in treatment, and seeks to build on successes and solutions already present. It is usually a short-term therapy.

Solution focused therapy can help with behavioral issues, relationship problems, drug use, and other issues where clients have become enmeshed in negative and problematic feelings and behavior. Solution focused therapists believe there are always exceptions to the problem behavior or symptom, and in those exceptions lie the beginnings of positive change.
