Therapy: Solution-Focused Brief Therapy

Solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT) places focus on a person's present and future circumstances and goals rather than past experiences.

In this goal-oriented therapy and it helps people to develop a vision of the future and offers support as they determine the skills, resources, and abilities needed to achieve that vision successfully.

SFBT, which aims to help people identify and find tools they can use immediately to manage symptoms and cope with challenges. It is founded in the belief that although individuals may already have the skills to create change in their lives, they often need help recognising and developing those skills.

SFBT incorporates techniques and interventions from positive psychology principles and practices, and facilitates change by constructing solutions rather than focusing on problems.  SFBT is a hope friendly and positive emotion eliciting as well as future-oriented approach that focuses on creating and sustaining desired behavioural change. SFBT can be used to treat a wide range of issues.
