Build Your Strengths

Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) is a strengths-based, brief therapy approach used by Green Path Psychiatric Nursing Practitioner services to help individuals identify and build upon their existing strengths and resources, and to develop practical solutions to the challenges they face.

In this approach, the psychiatric nurse practitioner helps the patient to define their goals and to identify the specific actions they can take to achieve them. The focus is on finding practical, effective solutions to the problems the patient is facing, rather than dwelling on past failures or problems.

The approach is highly collaborative, with the nurse practitioner working closely with the patient to identify and amplify their existing strengths, resources, and successes. The focus is on finding concrete, achievable solutions that the patient can implement immediately to achieve their goals.


Ultimately, the goal of Solution Focused Brief Therapy is to empower patients to take charge of their own lives and to develop practical solutions that are consistent with their own values and goals. It is a positive, empowering, and highly effective approach that can help patients make rapid progress towards their desired outcomes.
