NLP Principals for Success
In addition to the approach of systematically removing traditional elements of therapy, they also looked at "accidents" or "random" and spontaneous events in therapeutic conversations, sometimes described as the "the theory of no theory" or the "the theory of what works". It has been shown time and again that within a few minutes of being shown, this approach can be applied immediately, so it's highly practical.
There are now over 32 published research studies on solution-focused brief therapy and successful outcomes in 65% to 83% of cases. The highest satisfaction ratings come from clients themselves. Some of the research studies relate to very serious mental health problems, drug and alcohol use, criminal behaviour and domestic violence.
