Abstract

Solution-focused therapy has been around for approximately 20 years. It has been used in a variety of contexts including schools, agencies, and private practice and with a wide range of clients including children, adolescents, couples, and families. The current article addresses how solution-focused therapy can be used in a marathon session format. The paper addresses how solution-focused therapy makes sense, in some circumstances, being conducted in a marathon-session format. The article details how various aspects of solution-focused therapy are amenable to the unique context of marathon sessions and what some contraindications are for this format. A case example is provided to exemplify the benefits of this unique format.
