Problem-solving therapy

Problem-solving therapy is a brief structured psychological therapy that takes a problem-solving approach to psychological difficulties associated with depression, anxiety and mood disorders.

This form of psychotherapy is based on the assumption that unresolved and enduring every-day practical difficulties may trigger and sustain psychological problems. Therefore, the focal point of this treatment is to enable individuals to identify some or all of their practical problems and make plans toward resolving them.

Upon completion of a course of treatment, people become more effective with managing every-day problems as these occur. This contributes to the prevention of further emotional distress.

Problem-solving therapy is a highly collaborative approach that requires the person’s commitment to work towards meeting the goals set during therapy. 

Research has shown that problem solving therapy may be ‘effective in the treatment of major depression and for patients with a broad range of emotional disorders that have not resolved with simple measures’ (Mynors-Wallis, 2001).
