Understanding Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT): Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) is a goal-oriented and strength-based therapeutic approach that focuses on identifying and building upon an individual's existing strengths and resources. Developed by Steve de Shazer and Insoo Kim Berg, SFBT is brief in duration and seeks to help individuals find practical solutions to their problems, rather than dwelling on the issues themselves. Application and Scope of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT): SFBT is applied to a wide range of psychological concerns, including anxiety, depression, addiction, and relationship issues. It's particularly effective for individuals seeking a short-term and solution-focused approach to problem-solving. SFBT is relevant for people of all ages and backgrounds. What to Expect in Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) Sessions: In SFBT sessions, individuals work with a trained therapist who guides them in identifying their goals, strengths, and potential solutions to their challenges. The therapy often involves asking solution-focused questions that help individuals envision a preferred future and take steps toward achieving it. SFBT is future-oriented and encourages individuals to take an active role in their problem-solving.
