Read “Topic 7: Vargas Family Case Study.”
Part 1: Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT): Review the Solution-Focused Brief Therapy Manual located in the topical materials. Identify a specific presenting concern that one of the Vargas family members has identified this week. Create a “transcript” of the session where the therapist uses solution-oriented language to identify a solution to the problem. The transcript should be 500-750-words in length. Use the SFBT Manual transcripts as an example.
Part 2: Narrative Therapy: Identify one member of the Vargas family whose dominant story could use some re-writing. Consider the course of treatment and write a mid-treatment letter to the identified family member. See your book and the Dulwich Center for examples. The letter should be 500-750-words in length.
