Insoo Kim Berg's unique style and unwavering optimism comes to life in this demonstration of Solution-Focused BriefTherapy.

When couples come to therapy they are often combative, quick to point the finger, and about to give up on the relationship. In this video, Insoo Kim Berg demonstrates her approach with one such couple, and in two sessions shows how effective it can be to focus a couple on their strengths and resources, moving them away from fighting and towards collaboration.

Leslie is angry with her husband, Bill, for working long hours and neglecting her and the children. Bill is struggling to support his family and believes Leslie doesn't appreciate or trust him. Insoo Kim Berg uses techniques to focus this fiery and argumentative couple on solutions, and bring their mutual commitment to the relationship and family to the forefront.

From watching this video, you will:

  • Gain an understanding of the goals of a solution-focused brief therapy approach with couples, and what it means to support, generate and enlarge solutions.
  • Learn how to apply solution-focused techniques to your work with couples including finding Exceptions to Problems, the Miracle Question, Scaling, and Amplifying Change.
  • Witness Berg’s remarkable ability to connect with challenging clients and inspire them to discover their strengths and resources.
