Solution-focused Therapy at A New Start, Inc.

Solution-focused therapy, also known as Solution-focused Brief Therapy is future-focused, goal-directed, and focuses on solutions as opposed to issues. SFBT is goal oriented therapy targeting the desired outcome of therapy. This method of therapy focuses on the present and the future, and only focusing on the past to the degree necessary for communicating empathy and understanding of the individual’s concerns. Together the client and therapist can generate ideas for solutions to the clients’ problems. Using this therapy method, they highlight and utilize the strengths of the client to enable a more effective future.

Using this method therapists provide support to clients by asking them to identify times in their life when things matched more closely with the future they prefer. Questions and compliments are primary tools of the solution-focused approach. Instead of making interpretations or confronting their clients, therapists focus on identifying the client’s goals and generating detailed descriptions of what life will be like when the goal is accomplished or the problem is gone or coped with.
