Since the Solution Focused Approach is conversational in nature, and, based on questions, the clinician who is working with couples needs to be comfortable asking these kinds of questions when there are more than one person in the room. This can be tricky due to the nature of couples therapy. This talk will center on how to conduct couples session using this approach and how to use the question process to navigate even the trickiest sessions.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Utilize the Solution Focused Approach in their work with couples.
  2. Identify the core components that make Solution Focused questions more effective with couples.
  3. Identify the difference between problem focused and Solution Focused questions.
