What is Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT)?

Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT) is a goal-oriented approach that focuses on identifying and building upon the client's strengths and resources to achieve positive change. In SFT, the therapist and client collaborate to define clear, achievable goals and explore exceptions to the problem, instances when the issue is less severe or absent. Common protocol and topics in SFT include discussing the client's desired outcomes, exploring previous successes and coping strategies, identifying small steps toward change, and evaluating progress in subsequent sessions. The therapy emphasizes solutions rather than dwelling on problems, encouraging clients to envision a future where their goals are realized and to take practical steps to make that vision a reality. Through a focus on strengths, possibilities, and practical solutions, SFT empowers clients to overcome challenges and create meaningful change in their lives.
