Solution Focused Interventions

Solution-focused interventions or advising is a classing technique to involve students in a counselling session. This technique of solution-focused academic advising and therapy is integrated with the psychotherapeutic method. This model helps the counsellor to identify and focus on strengths of students with consideration of short-term goals to develop change. There are six interventions and techniques of solution-focused advising or counselling that is built on a conceptual model. This therapy is easy to adapt to the flexibility of assisting clients in terms of identifying his problem with all possible exceptions. These interventions help to deal with the problems of wide-range of routine life activities like addiction i.e. adolescent issues, child abuse etc.

The solution-focused interventions play a role of a bridge in different context those are outside from classic therapies like counselling of school students, academic advising and group therapy. This is actually a system therapy that considers the problem of an individual by placing change as one part of the system that will bring change in other parts of the system with a ripple effect. In this regards, growth and change are perceived as ongoing and inevitable things that are required to be understood by the client or the prospect in terms of preventing himself from the occurrence. Further, solution-focused intervention therapy is the way of building constructive thinking that one can call as the self-imagined or defined realities. So in this perspective change occurs because of one’ own redefine realities or perspective about reality.

Here the client is told to see the issue with an exception that will make the problem not look like a problem an example can be stated as telling the prospect that how did she/he handle same problem before so it is not a problem anymore because he/she is able to deal with it. Collectively constructive thinking and system theory developed on the basis of solution-focused advising provide a framework for the adviser to understand that the solution-focused therapy itself is not human based but models driven from these interventions are psychotherapeutic methods. So there is no core theoretical model of solution-focused therapy to identify the occurrence of dysfunction but provides a conceptual framework for change to adapt to the prospect. As solution-focused therapy is not the theoretical model so it is flexible that’s why it’s provided framework is easy to adapt to various problems and contexts.

Adapting models driven by solution focused therapy an individual shares an expected flow of change with a specific goal establishment that results as an ability to see problems with an exception that plays a role of the partial solution of the problem. So to completely understand solution-focused therapy one needs to the interventions those are driven model of the therapy. As per researchers and theorists of the field, the solution-focused therapy is a phenomenon that is not possible to cover with complete scope in an article that shows the excellence of the solution-focused therapy process.
