Plenary: The solution-focused theory of change

Plenary: The solution-focused theory of change

Peter Sundman, Svea van der Horn, Marie-Christine Cabie, Ferdinand Wolf, Mathias Schwab (EBTA task-group)

Solution-focused Brief Therapy and other kinds of solution-focused work is based on over thirty years of theoretical development, clinical practice, and empirical research. Nobody has, strangely enough, written how and why it works. There are only some written descriptions and personal working theories. This is a handicap that should and could be dealt with.

In this panel a theory draft, written by an EBTA task-group, is discussed together with the audience. The draft has also been open for suggestions and comments during the conference.
