Bill O'Hanlon, LMFT
Format
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Summary
How do people get happy? That is the question that inspired pioneer Bill O'Hanlon to become a therapist and devote his life to respectfully and effectively helping people change through Solution-Oriented Therapy. Unlike many therapies that tend to focus on problems and explanations, Solution-Oriented Therapy (also known as Possibility Therapy) is an exciting, optimistic, and non-pathologizing model that taps into people's potential to change. Pam is a woman in her thirties who lives at home with her retired father, Adrian, and her working mother, Judy. Adrian and Judy are fed up with the way Pam always slams doors, mumbles, and walks away when they ask her questions or tell her what to do. According to Adrian, "She won't talk to us about nothing!" In this live family therapy session, O'Hanlon helps this struggling family improve their communication by shining a light on their habitual interactional patterns, thus enabling them to begin to relate to each other more effectively. As O'Hanlon warmly engages and gently challenges each family member, he demonstrates some of the key aspects of Solution-Oriented Therapy, such as: attending primarily to the present and future, acknowledging feelings, the three key components of change, and focusing on exceptions and possibilities. If you're serious about helping your clients change, take advantage of this opportunity to learn from one of the most optimistic, dynamic, and inspirational therapists of our time. Part of the 10-video series: Family Therapy with the Experts. Keywords: SFT, solution, solution-focused, developmental, delay, family, pragmatic, practical, problem solving, Counseling, counselling, Social Work, Social Worker, Therapy, Psychotherapy, Psychotherapy.net, Therapist.--Supplied by publisher.
