SOLUTION FOCUSED THERAPY (SFT)
At Ward & Associates, we incorporate Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT), which is an approach based on identifying and building upon strengths and resources. By highlighting their existing skills and abilities, we help clients develop a sense of confidence and self-efficacy in overcoming challenges.
WHAT IS SFT?
SFT is a goal-oriented, brief therapy approach that emphasizes finding solutions rather than focusing extensively on problems. It helps individuals identify their strengths, resources, and goals to generate solutions for achieving desired outcomes. SFT encourages clients to focus on what is working in their lives and how they can build upon those strengths to create positive change. This approach recognizes that individuals are the experts in their own lives and can make meaningful changes.
HOW DOES SFT WORK?
In SFT sessions, therapists collaborate with clients to set clear, achievable goals and explore exceptions or times when the problem is less severe or absent. Emphasis is placed on recognizing strengths and using these strengths to create practical, solution-focused strategies.
By focusing on what is already working, clients are empowered to tap into their own resources and develop solutions that are unique to their situation. The therapist's role is to guide and support the client in this process, helping them to identify and amplify their strengths while also addressing any barriers or obstacles that may be hindering progress. This collaborative approach fosters a sense of ownership and empowerment, ultimately leading to positive change and improved well-being.
