Solution Focused Therapy

What Is Solution- Focus Brief Therapy?

Solution-focused (brief) therapy (SFBT)[ is a goal-directed collaborative approach to psychotherapeutic change. It focuses on addressing what clients want to achieve without exploring the history and provenance of problem(s).


SF therapy sessions typically focus on the present and future, focusing on the past only to the degree necessary for communicating empathy and accurate understanding of the client's concerns.

SFBT is future-oriented and goal-oriented interviewing technique that helps clients "build solutions."


Elliot Connie defines solution building as "a collaborative language process between the client(s) and the therapist that develops a detailed description of the client(s)' preferred future/goals and identifies exceptions and past successes".  By doing so, SFBT focuses on clients' strengths and resilience.
