Patient-Centered Therapy

By: yuanith, Jorge, yaquian, Kristina

Theory and practice of contemporary psychotherapies

Patient-Centered Therapy

In a Person-Centered Therapy, the goal is to empower the patient. The therapist does not guide the conversation, instead the therapist lets the patients take the lead in determining what they want to talk about. For example, questions such as “What would you like to talk about today?” let the client initiate the therapy session.

Patient-Centered Therapy

The therapist is not the “expert” who will lay out the plan of care, guide or give advice during the session. On the contrary, the patient will gain insight to their inner feelings and experiences, giving them absolute power in developing their own answers and plan of care.

Michelle

solution focused brief therapy

Created in 1970s by Steve de Shazar & Insoo Kim Berg

Future- focused, goal oriented therapeutic approach

Constructs solutions rather than focusing on problems

Doesn’t analyze problems, past events or how problems emerged

Stand alone therapy or combined with other therapy styles

Average length of therapy: 2-8 sessions

(Corey, 2017)

assumptions

Client is the expert- they know themselves best

Each client approaches counseling from unique point of view influenced by their background/experience

Placing focus on strengths & solutions will reduce the length of therapy to a minimum

Small changes lead to bigger changes

People are competent and have the ability to find solutions & the ability to change

(Yates, Choi & Beauchemin, 2020)

Process

(Perry, 2019)

Give

Give client the opportunity to discuss their problems

Work

Work with client to develop well-formed goals quickly

Ask about

Ask about times when problems weren’t there

Provide

Provide summary/feedback, provide encouragement

Goals should be….

Stated positively in the client’s language

Action-oriented

Structured in the here & now

Attainable, concrete, specific & measurable

Controlled by the client

(Corey, 2017), (Murphy, 2015)

Techniques

Looking for “exceptions”- times when problems weren’t there

Past experiences when the problem could have occurred but did not

Present future questions, not past-oriented questions

Problems best solved by focusing on what is working now

Compliments

Clients feel motivated & empowered to achieve goals

The “miracle question”

How would client feel if they woke up tomorrow and all their problems were solved?

Picture reality where all problems are solved

Techniques cont.

Scaling question- On a scale from 1 to 10

Client’s perception of problem severity

Shows the client they are not completely defeated by the problem

Solution-focused therapy

 

Introduction

In this discussion we will explore the goal-oriented, future-focused ideology of solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT). Unlike traditional methods, SFBT does not analyze or focus on problems or past experiences, but rather focuses on the client’s present and future goals. SFBT resembles positive psychology in that it concentrates on what is right and working in the client’s life, instead of dwelling on problems or weaknesses. This positivity empowers and motivates the client to overcome their difficulties in a relatively short period of time.
