Solution Focussed

Solution Focussed Therapy

Reflecting on the dark side of positivism has led me to entertain that there is another side to it as well. A colleague suggested that Solution Focussed therapy was not really in the positivist/modern tradition because it was so fully client centred.

The mode of questioning seems to be a key component.

What has worked

Are there times when this has been less of a problem?
What did you (or others) do that was helpful?

Exceptions

What is different about the times when this is less of a problem?

Future-focus

What will you be doing in the next week that would indicate to you that you are continuing to make progress?

One small thing you would you do if miraculously your wildest dreams came true?

Compliments

Appreciatively toned questions of “How did you do that?”
