The Institute for Solution-Focused Therapy (2022) defines SFBT as a short-term, goal-oriented approach that incorporates aspects of positive psychology and helps clients experience change by constructing solutions rather than focusing on problems. The therapy process begins by the client imagining what life would be like without the problems that they are experiencing. The therapist and client then co-construct a practical and sustainable solution to implement.
