Solutions Focused Brief Therapy

Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) is typically applied with short term problems such as making life decisions or in adjusting to changes in one’s environment such as children leaving home.  SFBT emphasizes what the client wants to achieve through therapy rather than concentrating on the client’s problems. The approach emphasizes the present and future rather than focusing on the past. The therapist/counselor uses respectful curiosity to invite the client to envision a preferred future and then helps the client start moving toward it.
