Full Description:   

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

Children and teenagers are all to often the scapegoat to a family’s troubles and the impetus for a family to enter therapy. In this video, Insoo Kim Berg shows us how to help a family come together as a whole to build on their strengths and collaborate on solutions.

Berg demonstrates her approach in two therapy sessions with a family. Judy is at wits end with her husband, Lou, who won’t help out at home and with her daughter, Sarah, who prefers to hang out with her boyfriend instead of going to school. Sarah is sick of her mother nagging her and of the tense atmosphere at home. Lou is struggling with unemployment and admits that the family doesn’t laugh anymore. Berg uses techniques to reconnect this family so that they can build on what has brought them together in the past and hear laughter in the home again.

    From watching this video, you will:
  • Gain an understanding of the goals of a solution-focused approach with families, and what it means to support, generate and enlarge solutions.
  • Learn how to apply solution-focused techniques to your work with families 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.
