There are many times in life when you may need to find some help with your problems. Not every likes the idea of therapy, and some refuse to go no matter what they are going through. However, those that give it a try usually find some help and hope in what they get from their therapist. This can be emotional issues as well as things that pertain to the physical well-being of the body whether it be chronic pain or sudden injury. We live in a time when no one seems to have time for anything, and when something happens, some turn to solution focused therapy to speed things up.
Solution focused therapy is a lot like it sounds. This is something that is done quickly and specifically targets what is going on with your body or your mind. If, for example, you have just gone through a death that has hit you rather hard, and you can’t seem to dig your way out of your gloom, this type of solution focused therapy will dwell on that subject and that subject alone. It might propel you towards moving on with your life without really dwelling on anything in the past that might be making this particular death hard for you to move on from in the first place.
It might also help someone deal with a specific physical issue. Though your knee may be hurting because of a lifetime of sitting the wrong way, or perhaps another type of long term problem, solution focused therapy might just work on correctly the injury now without much mention of why it happened in the first place. This can be great to get you up and moving, but it won’t do much to stop the problem in the future. When you think about solution based therapy, you have to think of help for now, but you must go back and fix the root on your own.
There are some personalities that do well with solution focused therapy, and others that do not. You may find that focusing on the outcome rather than the root is not helping, and in that case, you must find more involved therapy. However, if you want to get on with things, and perhaps deal with the larger picture at another time, solution focused therapy might do you some good in the short term. No matter what your issue, you do have to get to the root of it eventually, but there are times when that is not possible or advised.
