What is Brief Therapy?
Brief or solution-focused therapy is a practical, action-oriented approach to solving emotional and behavioral problems. Solution-oriented counseling emphasizes the present: on changing currently held beliefs or attitudes and maladaptive behaviors that cause emotional pain.
Solution-focused therapy emphasizes people’s strengths and inner resources, bypasses a lot of analysis and gives people concrete ways of changing their actions and their points of view. Solution-oriented counseling can be applied to many life situations and the results can be rapid, effective and life enhancing.
