SOLUTION-FOCUSED THEORIES

Discussion 1

There are various factors to consider when choosing the most appropriate therapy method
to use for every client. Different problems come with different issues and not all problem(s),
whether related or not require the same solution. This is why I find it appropriate to apply
solution-focused therapy whether counseling individual, family, or marriage client. Each of the
other forms of therapy might be useful in some isolated situations but focusing on the various
elements of each problem is key (Quick, 2016). The most outstanding advantage about solutionfocused therapy is that it focuses on exemptions to every problem and examines each exemption
to ensure that the client gets the best outcome or solution to their problem. This should be the
ultimate goal for therapy considering that it does not just focus on short-term solutions alone but
also on clear effective and more effective future.
Contextual factors have become the focus of many therapists with many opting to make
their clients more contented with their services. Feminist therapy, for example, lacks merit
because of its political nature (Simon, 2018). It does not give a clear solution to each problem
but rather generalizes issues based on gender. Feminist therapy does not allow therapists to focus
on the real problem in marriage or in the family but chooses to take sides based on its
interrogative nature. Narrative therapy, on the other hand, is outdated and the approach is not
effective in handling either individual or family problems. The various concepts applied in
solution-focused therapy enable many therapists to solve many problems that many clients are
currently facing. For example, marriage clients want to be listened to and advised accordingly
based on the problem they have presented to the therapist not on a gender basis or based on
another problem presented by a different couple. Solution-focused therapy usually avoids
generalization which has been a big problem in the field (Quick, 2016).
