Cognitive-behavioral therapy has many branches. Choosing and following the right method can help you feel like yourself again sooner than you think. One innovative process, called solution-focused therapy, is a method that can work well for some patients who need a limited amount of therapy for a specific concern.
A Solution-Focused Therapy Overview
Not all therapy solutions are right for all patients, and that's why it's important to seek the care of experienced therapy professionals to guide you through the process. Solution-focused therapy is a type of cognitive behavior therapy that can help you turn a corner toward a more positive and fulfilling life. 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.
During the process, the therapist helps develop a detailed visualization of how different your life can be once you remove the negative behavioral issues disrupting your life. The key to the therapy is not only focusing on what can be but also coming up with a detailed plan describing how to get there. Using tools and strategies you already possess but may not realize you have, this implementation plan gives you a clear indication of the path to take toward a more fulfilling life. Developing a plan to reach your goal also involves examining past choices that positively affect your life and reflect on how making similar choices can get you back on track.
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. If you choose this therapy method, know that the solutions to your current issues are already inside you and that you just need someone to help you make the connections. Solution-focused therapy works best in brief or short-term therapy situations and can be highly effective once you decide to take the first step.
