Guided questions leading to positive outcomes
Solution Focused Therapy is a collaboration between a therapist and client with a client-determined, specific goal in mind. Therapists provide guided questions and observations that help the client move along a path towards more positive outcomes in their life.
This particular therapy style highlights the strength, abilities, and skills of the client instead of focusing on weaknesses, inabilities, or perceived shortcomings.
The solution-focused approach is future-oriented and directed at reaching specific goals. Therapists work with clients to encourage seeking solutions versus focusing on problems or roadblocks. Solution-focused therapy can be very active and rewarding.
