Solution Focus: How to Transform Problems into Solutions
In recognizing the limitations of traditional problem solving methods, solution focus has aided many individuals in changing their perception of problems and transforming them into solutions. Regardless of what difficulties one may be tackling, this book offers practical skills for overcoming. Filled with examples and illustrations, it addresses and explains the role of the all important “miracle” questions as well as “exceptions,” “scaling,” and “coping” questions to help identify leverage points for change. Active listening, a key solution focus skill is reviewed extensively.
In addition, readers will learn how to establish well-formed goals and understand the truth of the philosophical statement “if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it.” Solution Focus’ radical simplicity diverts your attention away from the often frustrating search for the causes of problems and directs it to solutions; away from your weaknesses to your strengths; away from what is going wrong, to what is going right in your life. Though it may not be a fix-all, it will certainly give you a viable alternative to outdated problem solving strategies and teaches how to put solution focused knowledge into everyday practical use. If you want to learn a new way of assisting yourself or others to deal more creatively and effectively with problems, then you are encouraged to explore Solution Focus’ simple principles and tools for positive change.
