Brief Therapy in Teen Addiction Treatment Programs
Inspirations Teen Rehab embraces Brief Therapy, as an effective approach in working with teens struggling with teen behavioral problems, teen anger, and teen drug abuse problems. Brief Therapy is a term that refers to an approach of psychotherapy in which the therapist works with clients to solve problems is a less time than traditional or long term therapy. “The purpose of brief therapy is not to “understand” the cause of a given problem, but to find fertile ways of thinking about it and practical ideas to deal with it” (Hoyt, 1994, p. 41). The Brief Therapy approach was pioneered by Milton H. Erickson (Hoyt, p. 41). It was later expanded to include other therapeutic family therapy approaches (strategic therapy, systemic family therapy, solution-focused therapy, narrative therapy), yet the therapeutic approaches that have followed, continue to keep the term of “brief therapy” a core component of each therapeutic approach.
