Applying Narrative and Solution-Focused Therapy

Children can feel overtaken by family problems and allow those problems to define who they are. In

this video, Stephen Madigan presents a refreshing approach that allows family members to separate

themselves from their problems and retell their stories. By asking a series of compassionate

questions, Madigan quickly gets to the heart of this family’s frustration–a pattern of competitive

taunting among the six children in the house. Madigan then helps them uncover skills, strengths and

solutions to take home in order to break the family pattern. Jon Carlson and Don Keat introduce Dr.

Madigan, and facilitate an in-depth discussion of the further impact and uses of the model. From
