What is Solution Focus?
Share |

This page is Under Construction - content submissions welcome to


Solution Focus is an approach to working with individuals, couples, groups, and organisations based on the work of Steve de Shazer and Insoo Kim Berg at the Brief Family Therapy Centre, Milwaukee, in the 1980's.

A key early publication is Steve de Shazer's book Clues: Investigating Solutions in Brief Therapy (1988).

The term 'Solution Focused Brief Therapy' continues to be used in the therapy world, but as the model has developed and extended it's application into coaching (individual and team), education, health, management and organisational consulting, the more general term 'Solution Focused Practice' has come into popular use.

For further information, you may wish to listen to our podcast What is Solution Focused Practice? with Guy Shennan.

Solution Focused Practice continues to develop. You may also wish to listen to Dr. Mark McKergow discussing Solution Focused Brief Therapy 2.0 . Mark has also written an article on this issue which is available here.
