Solution Focused Therapy

Solution-focused therapy is goal-oriented, concentrating on the present and future rather than the past. The therapist's role is to support the client in creating a vision of the future. The therapist and the client then work toward building the skills and resources for the client to meet his or her goals.

There is an assumption that many people possess some skills and resources to help them achieve their goals, but may need support from a therapist in identifying and strengthening their skill set, as well as fully accessing their resources.
