Solution Focused Therapy
“If a miracle happened and the problem you have was solved overnight, how would you know it was solved, and what would be different? This question is known as the “Miracle Question” and is a well-known technique used in Solution Focused Therapy (SFT), developed by Shazer and Berg. SFT is a future-oriented, goal-directed, and emphasizes solutions rather than problems within therapy. A focus on solutions gives clients the imagination to visualize a life without their daily stressors and begin to identify solutions to their problems. SFT tales a non-knowing approach and empowers clients to be the experts to their own lives, developing a collaborative relationship between therapist and client. This presentation will highlight the historical tenets of SFT, discuss the process and role of the therapist, and identify key techniques characteristic of SFT.
