Paper

Abstract

Recursive frame analysis (RFA) was used to conduct a single case investigationif Insoo Kim Berg's question utilization talk in a solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT) session. Due to the lack of process research that explores how SFBT questions facilitate change, the author investigated how Berg’s solution language influenced a client to respond in session. The purpose of this case study was to explore how SFBT questions served as interventions to facilitate change. The research question for this study was twofold: (a) how does Berg’s language influence conversation and (b) how is the client influenced by Berg’s questions in a therapeutic context? The findings suggest that Berg’s questions serve as interventions for change as noted by patterns in the therapeutic conversation.
