Solution-focused brief therapy has grown in popularity due to its strengths-based therapy approach, focus on measurable goals and significant client progress in a brief time period. While more research is needed, the body of existing research indicates that SFBT is an effective therapy model for individual, groups and families who are experiencing a variety of mental health and social problems.
