In today’s episode, we talk with Dr. Gale Miller, sociologist, emeritus research professor at Marquette University, and observer and listener at the Brief Family Therapy Center (BFTC) in Milwaukee, about
- what fascinates him about Solution Focus
- what intrigued him when he first came to the Brief Family Therapy Center (BFTC) in 1984
- the evolution from the ecosystemic approach to Solution Focus
- how he could observe Steve de Shazer and Insoo Kim Berg
- how and what he observed that was going on at BFTC
- how they learned through observing, discussing, trying out and observing again
- the systematic review and the importance of the research committee at BFTC or how they watched therapy tapes and discussed them
- emotions in the Solution Focused approach
- The challenge of the week: Be silent and listen at the next meeting and observe who says what and who response in what way and how the conversation goes on. What do you learn when you see this?
