The approach used by Dr. Mazza at the Center for Problem Solving focuses on what is most troubling now. While enough of the past must be understood to make sense of the present, this goal oriented short-term therapy is oriented toward the present and future and does not emphasize pathology and the past. Although there is no limit to the number of sessions that can be scheduled, our attitude toward time is to create positive change as quickly as possible and practical.
This therapy utilizes the particular strengths and aptitudes that every client brings with them. These strengths are used in the most productive way to ameliorate problems and introduce flexibility, thereby creating new solutions and possibilities.
The goal is for us to quickly become obsolete by helping to solve problems. Therefore, we look for the shortest effective course of treatment. Toward this end, family members and significant others are sometimes asked to participate in the therapy. Decisions about who is to be included in the therapy are made while arranging for the initial appointment and from time to time during the therapy.
