This article describes the form of brief therapy developed at the Brief Family Therapy Center. We have chosen a title similar to Weakland, Fisch, Watzlawick, and Bodin's classic paper, “Brief Therapy: Focused Problem Resolution” (20) to emphasize our view that there is a conceptual relationship and a developmental connection between the points of view expressed in the two papers.
