The Centre for Solution Focused Practice

Do we take our clients seriously?

‘Don’t you think that there is a risk that your clients may not feel that they are being taken seriously, that they are being understood?’ This is the polite version of a question that Solution Focused presenters are asked frequently, indeed a question that I was asked the other day, very politely and very appropriately, in Helsinki. And the question is an important one. Evan George tries to answer.

The four foundations of therapeutic minimalism.

Evan has just returned from Finland where Ben Furman invited him to share his thinking on therapeutic minimalism. It was a great 2 days and during the course of those two days he learned a great deal about what he thinks about the Secrets of Minimalism. Here Evan sets out four foundational ideas without which minimalism is impossible.

Relationally undemanding.

There is a sort of logical error that must have a name. It is when we apply the requirements or characteristics of one thing to another thing as if the two things are of the same kind – just that they are not. Evan George discusses one of these logical errors relating to our field of Solution Focused Brief Therapy.
