Clinical Applications of Evidence-Based Family Interventions

While solution-focused therapy shares with other family therapy models a focus on the contextual nature of behavior, its unique focus is on exceptions, times when the problem is not a problem (de Shazer, Berg, Lipchick, Nunnally, Molnar, Gingerich, & Weiner-Davis, 1986). The practitioner helps the family identify resources used during exceptions and then how to amplify strengths and apply them to problem situations. This chapter discusses the beginning evidence for solution-focused therapy, followed by a delineation of the assumptions of the model. Major techniques are explained and applied to a case example.
