Solution Focused Brief Therapy
Long-term therapy is not always an available option, and it’s not always the best option, especially when the patient won’t benefit from wallowing in the past. Thus, SBFT is helpful in quickly finding the root cause behind their addictions and other co-existing mental conditions. With this understanding, New Creation Treatment is careful in selecting only the treatment methods that work most effectively in conjunction with our Christian faith-based rehabilitation programs. One of such methods is solution-focused brief therapy (SBFT).
What is Solution-Focused Brief Therapy?
SBFT essentially focuses on a patient’s present situation and future goals instead of dwelling in the past. In other words, its main emphasis is on the solutions to the problems, and not guilt or blame for the problems themselves. Our skilled and professional therapists will encourage and assist each patient in the development of a positive vision towards a more successful recovery. They are as supportive as they are sensitive in determining the respective abilities, resources, and skills of each individual.
How It Works
The primary aim of solution-focused brief therapy is to aid women alcoholics and addicts determine the necessary tools for the immediate management of symptoms and coping with difficulties.
- Once patients recognize what works for their respective circumstances, they can thus better explore and make informed choices regarding the most suitable and effective treatment plan. SBFT also follows an eclectic approach that allows and supports various problem-solving attempts.
What to Expect At Our Solution-Focused Brief Therapy Sessions
During a session, our therapists will be asking a set of various questions.
- There may also be questions regarding assessing your current circumstances, your growth and development, and how other people may view you. This particular line of questioning is ideal for patients who find it difficult to verbalize and openly talk about their very personal issues. By asking a patient to scale something from 0-10, she is less intimidated and more motivated to cooperate. This approach doesn’t seem daunting or intrusive to her privacy and she doesn’t need to talk too much if she doesn’t feel like it.
Here at New Creation Treatment, our treatment methods are designed to help uplift and empower women. Solution-focused brief therapy(SBFT) believes that the patient herself knows more about her current situation more than anyone else and that the therapists are simply there to assist, guide and encourage each one.
