Becoming Solution Focused in Therapy

Mastering Solution-Focused Brief Therapy requires practitioners to learn the deceptively simple process of asking targeted questions in session that thwart the all too common temptation for both therapist and client to focus on the problem, rather than exploring solutions. In addition to making therapy briefer and more efficient, this approach will increase your effectiveness with any client, with any issue, including depression and anxiety.
