This is at least in part because partners come to therapy prepared to talk about their problems in great detail. They come into therapy thinking they have to understand the problem to ascertain who is at fault and subsequently who needs to change to resolve their conflict.

Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) breaks away from many historical traditions of psychotherapy. In the past, psychotherapy has focused on identifying the problem, an in depth exploration of the problem, and a search for the root of the problem. The focus has been on the problem.

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…
