In virtually all families, there are moments when the kids are unhappy with their parent's limits, rules, and requests - and the kids are disobedient or make bad decisions. When families fail to successfully negotiate difficulties, it can lead to more conflict, unhappiness or even breakdown of the family (and marriage). Most families want the best for each other, but can easily get caught in repeatedly focusing on the problem rather than finding a solution (that's achievable for all). Using goal-orientated Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), can assist you to identify a client's hoped for…
