Today, I want to tell you more about one of my skills as a PNI coach. As you know our mental wellbeing is also extremely important for our overall health. It helps us in a preventive, protective and curative way. Even when you think that your symptoms are only physical, your mental resilience is meaningful in your recovery.
Solution-Focused Brief Therapy
SFBT is future-oriented and goal-oriented interviewing technique that helps clients “build solutions”. Solution building has been defines as a collaborative language process between the client(s) and the therapist that develops a detailed description of the client(s) preferred future/goals and identifies exceptions and past successes By doing so, SFBT focuses on clients’ strenghs and resilience.
SFBT practitioners use skills to evoke a discussion about solutions, also known as “solution talk”, which is very different from “problem talk”. In SFBT, the questions themselves are the intervention. The questions focus the client to a conversation that creates and fosters a change-inducing mindset and decreasing negative feelings. SFBT questions help clients think about their situation in a solution-focused way. They attach new meaning to their experiences, noticing change potential where they might not have noticed it before.
SFBT is very adaptable to many settings, because it helps the clients create custom-made interventions for themselves. The result is that SFBT provides interventions that are perfectly matched with the clients’ way of understanding and acting.
SFBT is designed to help people change their lives in the fastest way possible. Change is efficient and effective. Treatment usually lasts less than six sessions and it can work in about two sessions.
