What’s up everybody. It’s Elliott Connie here with another edition of Solutions Every Day. And today I want to talk to you guys about what my favorite thing is about the Solution Focused Approach or at least what my favorite thing is about the Solution Focused Approach today. You know, I love doing Solution Focused Brief Therapy, and I love practicing in this way.
And there’s so many things that get me invigorated, inspired and excited about doing this type of work. But today I want to tell you guys what my favorite thing is today and how it manifested itself. So one of the things that I love and I can remember being young and somebody telling me that however long it took to create a problem. That’s at least how long it will take to solve that problem.
And my favorite thing about Solution Focused Brief Therapy, is that just quite frankly, not true. I cannot tell you how many times people come into my office and they’ve got like big, significant, longstanding, stubborn problems that are bothering their lives and or their relationship like depression, drug addiction, longstanding patterns and problems in their relationship that are getting in the way of them being happy.
Like I saw someone today and this was a family and there was a big issue that had been plaguing this family for a really, really long time. And then by the end of the conversation you could see like, one of my favorite things for people to say is when they say like, I hadn’t thought about it that way. So I saw this family and the dad in the family said, I haven’t thought about it that way. And it completely changed the dynamic in the family. And I got an email a couple of hours later saying they’re interacting differently already after the zoom session that we had. So it’s amazing to me that people have like such significant problems that bother their lives and that get in the way of their lived experience.
And then they make subtle seemingly subtle, but significant, you know, something can be small, but significant. They make a seemingly subtle change in their life. And then their entire life experience is different. So it’s exciting when you get to see that happen, I feel so privileged, honored, and fortunate that I get to be there and do this work and watch these things happen in people’s lives. And I hope that this video inspires you to do that same thing in the lives of the people that you work with, talk to and interact with because it’s big.
