The Solution Focused Approach with couples is a brief and outcome-driven approach to couples therapy. The focus is on the present and future, rather than the past. The aim is to help couples identify and achieve their desired outcomes, while ignoring or minimizing any problematic behaviors.

Learning Objectives:

  1. This helps the couple identify their strengths and resources, and uses these to find solutions to their problems.
  2. This also uses a variety of techniques such as scaling questions, miracle questions, and exception-finding to encourage the couple to identify their goals and focus on positive change. It is designed to be a brief and focused intervention.
  3. This makes it an attractive option for couples who are seeking a more efficient and effective way to resolve their problems. Overall, the Solution Focused Model with couples can be a highly effective way to help couples improve their relationships and achieve their desired outcomes.
