  13. 13. “People often find it difficult to stop trying to solve a problem because ‘deep down’ they (we) stick to thinking that an explanation is both realizable and indispensable if a problem is to really be solved. Solutions to problems are frequently missed because they often look like mere preliminaries; we end up searching for explanations believing that without an explanation a solution is irrational, not recognizing that the solution itself is its own best explanation.” – Steve de Shazer 13
  14. 14. Constructing Solutions Create & notice solutions in reference to the problems. Building on Success When something works, do more of it. Illuminating Resources Ask about and uncover competencies and skills. Finding new Perspectives Change the focus of your awareness. 14
  15. 15. No probing questions about the past … … however, questions about shaping the future How did the problem arise? What do you need to solve this issue successfully? Who caused the problem? When your problems are solved satisfactorily, what exactly will be different? What is the worst aspect of this issue? How could you behave differently in the future? Why? What behavior would indicate to other people that you have reached your goal? 15
