Toward a Synergistic Version of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy: Enhanced Efficacy through the Body and Emotion  [PDF]

Abstract: A number of prominent solution-focused brief therapists have expressed the view that, to its detriment, this school of therapy tends to downplay emotion. Accordingly, we contend that, given that emotion is a primal binding force, the bonding component of the crucially important therapeutic alliance risks being compromised in the current practice of this approach. We further argue that the prioritization of the depiction of actions that accompany the emotion expressed by the client over the actual participation in this emotion by the therapist tends to superficialize therapeutic communication. This is especially likely to happen when the therapist lapses into a formulaic, action-soliciting interrogatory mode in response to the emotion expressed by the client. In addition, we claim that the incorporation of emotion- and body-based approaches into the solution-focused canon could remedy the affective lacuna referred to above. We note, however, that such a modification would most likely face stiff resistance from some of the gatekeepers of solution-faced therapy, in particular those who subscribe to the “surface-only” descriptive approach advocated by the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein. And yet, the effectiveness of depth-oriented therapies, such as sensorimotor psychotherapy and somatic experiencing, is supported by neurophysiological considerations. Finally, we suggest that these therapies, and even creativogenic elements of psychoanalysis, can actually synergize solution-focused brief therapy through the generation of affect-laden images, sensations and thoughts that lend themselves to the realization of outcomes desired by the client, which is the raison d’etre of solution-focused brief therapy. This paper pleads for the incorporation of the above-noted depth approaches into solution-focused brief therapy with a view to augmenting its effectiveness through a stronger therapeutic bond owing to an increased emotional engagement on the part of the therapist.

Abstract: The present study aims to examine the effectiveness of the combination of solution-focused therapy and narrative therapy in marital adjustment of incompatible women. This research is a pretest-posttest quasi-experimental study design with a nonequivalent control group. The statistical population comprises all the incompatible women who referred to the counseling clinics of Neyshabour in May 2016 (1500 admission per month). The research sample consists of 24 incompatible women who were selected through Randomand available sampling method. For data collection, Marital Adjustment Scale by Spinner was applied. The data were analyzed using the analysis of covariance test and with the aid of SPSS-22 software. The findings demonstrated that the combination of solution-focused therapy and narrative therapy is significantly effective in marital adjustment of incompatible women (P < 0.05). Thus, it can be stated that the combination of solution-focused therapy and narrative therapy can help to promote adjustment among incompatible women.
Quality of object relations modifies the effectiveness of short- and long-term psychotherapy on self-concept  [PDF]

Open Journal of Psychiatry (OJPsych) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojpsych.2013.34036

The quality of object relations affects interpersonal behaviour, but it is not known whether it modifies effectiveness on personality functioning in psychotherapies of different mode and length. In this study we estimated the modifying effect of the quality of object relations on the effect of solution-focused therapy (SFT) and shortand long-term psychodynamic psychotherapy (SPP and LPP) on self-concept. A total of 326 patients were assessed at baseline with the Quality of Object Relations Scale (QORS) and 4 times during a 3-year follow-up with the Structural Analysis of Social Behavior self-concept questionnaire, comprising altogether 10 scores on different aspects of self-concept pathology. The effectiveness of SFT, but not SPP, was significantly poorer in several domains (5/10) of self-concept for patients with low QORS, i.e. those with less mature relational patterns, than for patients with high QORS, while the reversal occurred in some (3/10) self-concept domains in LPP. The results suggest that the quality of object relations has significance for treatment selection in therapies with different mode and length.

The effects of solution- focused psychotherapy on the marital satisfaction of dual career couples
Ali-Mohammad Nazari,Majid Goli
Knowledge & Health Journal , 2008,
Abstract: Introduction: This study was carried out in order to examine the effect of solution-focused psychotherapy on the marital satisfaction of some dual career couples. Solution-focused psychotherapy is a type of short-term psychotherapy that stresses on finding solutions to the problems a couple may have with the aid of a therapist. Methods and Materials: The partners who took part in this research work were both teachers. Among couples who participated in our pre-test, 24 of them were selected and were randomly allocated to two groups, experimental and control. The couples in the experimental group were put under the solution-focused psychotherapy for 7 sessions. The research instrument was the revised marital satisfaction inventory (MSI-R) form, devised by Schnither. To analyze the data, the split plot design ANOVA test together with the descriptive statistics methods was used. Results: The four variables aggression, togetherness, financial issues and sexual satisfaction were analyzed on the basis of the split plot design ANOVA and P<0.01. Significant differences were observed for these variables in different test levels (pre-test and post-test). Conclusion: According to the results of this study, solution-focused psychotherapy could decrease sexual problems and aggression and, on the other hand, could improve financial issues and togetherness.

Yoshinobu Fujita, Mai Kaneto
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2020, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2020.81020
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to examine the significance of applying solution-focused approach (referred to as “SFA”) to people with limited expression, to compare SFA with problem-oriented approach based on Bradshaw’s Taxonomy of Need. One case supported by social worker of the home nursing support office was the subject of analysis. Excerpts from the supporting records that used SFA were used to describe specifically how the questions were asked and how the cases responded. In this study, we show that SFA has a certain effect on the voluntary decision making of them, even for the persons with the constraint of the will expression.

Abstract: in mexico, excess drinking constitutes one of the main public health challenges nationwide. the 2002 national addictions survey documented the existence of 11 035 262 heavy drinkers, 3 226 490 habitual drinkers, 2 841 303 persons with alcohol dependence and 2 343 71 0 persons who started arguing with their spouse or partner when drunk. illnesses that are directly or indirectly associated with drinking are among the ten leading causes of death in mexico among the general population: specifically, men die from attacks or homicide, self-inflicted wounds, alcoholic liver disease and other chronic diseases of the liver and alcohol dependence syndrome. although there are various intervention strategies that attempt to influence this problem, it is not known whether these interventions are a causal factor in the change produced by the consumer and the way in which this change is produced after treatment; one way of determining this is by evaluating their results. although solution-focused therapy constitutes a different alternative to those that have traditionally been used for treating alcohol consumption, most research conducted in mexico and other countries is carried out using a social learning model. although the results of the solution-focused therapy have been documented in various countries in america and the european community, the findings are insufficient for it to be regarded as an optimal treatment for modifying excess alcohol consumption among the mexican population. objective to evaluate the results of the solution-focused therapy in ethanol-dependent persons and to determine the differences between those that seek to modify problems associated with alcohol consumption and those that seek to change their drinking styles. method a comparative o1-x-o2 longitudinal design was used, with a 12-month follow-up. the sample comprised 60 intentionally selected alcohol consumers, ages 18 to 50, who attended the center of assistance for alcoholics and their relatives (

Abstract: Solution Focused Brief Therapy was developed during the late 1970s and 1980s by Steve de Shazer and his colleagues. The purpose of this paper was to examine the application of Solution Focused Brief Therapy’s parallels with the author’s classroom experiences in a higher education setting that gave special considerations to the author’s disciplines of sociology, critical thinking, and marriage and family therapy. More specifically, the unique experiences are brought to a classroom by students much in the same manner that individuals bring experiences to a therapist who practices Solution Focused Brief Therapy. The author concludes that the perception of what constitutes a problem can be expressed as a limitation, not just merely defined as a problem.
Collaborative curriculum development in public relations: Applying Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)
Chris Galloway,Debbi Weaver
PRism Online PR Journal , 2009,
Abstract: This paper uses Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) to interpret the experience of an academic and an academic development advisor working together on the high-pressure development of new public relations curriculum. SFBT is a counselling approach focused on helping people make improvements in relation to given problems. In an academic development setting, it provides a framework for considering the way collaborative relationships can operate in the process of building curricula and enhanced teaching practices. In the case discussed here, a teaching academic and an academic development advisor found that SFBT provided a useful model for reflection on an extended collaboration. The paper proposes SFBT as a potentially valuable tool for academics and their advisors in other curriculum projects.
