Solution-Focused Brief Therapy

Solution-Focused Brief Therapy

Solution-Focused Brief Therapy is a form of therapy that is based upon social constructionist philosophy. What is unique about this therapy is that it focuses on clients’ goals and ways to achieve them rather than on the problems that led them to therapy in the first place.

With other forms of therapy, a longer time would be needed for observable results to be noted. The advantage of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy is that only a few sessions may be needed for clients to start achieving their goals as it focuses on client assets and not their deficits.
