Solution-focused therapy is a highly successful therapeutic technique, which first originated in 1970 by Steve de Shazer and Insoo Kim Berg.
Solution-focused therapy redirects focus from the problem, which initially brought the client to addiction treatment, to goal-oriented solutions. Solution-focused therapy assumes that all clients have a general knowledge of what will make their life better, though they may need assistance developing the details. This allows each client to dwell on the fact that they already possess the qualities necessary to implement the solution.
This conversational form of therapy helps the client through positive enforcement and discussion.
