1) I have read all of the required reading material for this course.

2) There is only anecdotal evidence that SFBT is effective, but research looks promising

3) Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) is a competency based approach which focuses on a clients strengths rather than their failings.

4) SFBT is a process of psycho-education without any questions, because they are time consuming.

5) Solution Focused Brief Therapy was developed by Steve de Shazer and Insoo Kim Berg in the early 1980ís.

6) Therapists must not focus on client pathology or analysis of the problem - often a very different approach to other therapeutic models.

7) SFBT is dependent on a very formal assessment process.

8) Assessment in SFBT involves asking a series of questions to formulate goals and client outcomes are assessed through scaling questions at various intervals during the clinical relationship.

9) Clients are encouraged to frame goals in a solution focused way.

10) The Miracle question is the leading technique in Solution Focused Brief Therapy.

11) Scaling questions invite clients to see their problem on a continuum and evaluate their progress towards goals.

12) Coping questions can be used to steer the client towards solution behavior when they report that their situation has not improved or that they do not feel any better.

13) Many types of therapy use homework assignments to solidify changes begun during therapy and is mostly assigned by the therapist.

14) SFBT can focus the couples on their strengths and resources and move them away from conflict towards cooperation.

15) Family therapy is too complex for applications of SFBT.

16) Causes of the problems with children are always investigated in SFBT.

17) Incorporating SFBT into an initial assessment with a client can assist you to formulate goals in collaboration, regardless of what type of therapy you will use for subsequent sessions.

18) SFBT aims to redirect the parentís perspective of the situation as one that can be changed and improved.

19) To work from the SFBT model, the therapist must take a positive stance towards the client, seek solutions and exceptions to the problem, carefully question the client in a future focused direction and compliment them on their successes.

20) Homework is never a part of SFBT.
