SFP 36 - Episode 36: Deliberate Practice: Reflecting Solution Focused Development with Scott D. Miller
In today’s episode, we talk with Scott D. Miller, PH.D., Founder of the International Center for Clinical Excellence, Author and Promoter of Deliberate Practice, about
- how he got in touch with Solution Focus
- how he moved to Milwaukee to work at the Brief Family Therapy Center (BFTC) in Milwaukee
- what fascinated him with the work at BFTC
how the way they worked back then has a lot to do with the work he does now
how describing Solution Focus to others led to a standardized approach
deliberate practice and how those therapists are most effective that measure their results, reflect their practice, and learn from feedback
the Outcome Rating Scale (ORS) and the Session Rating Scale (SRS) and how they can help you refine your practice
how well Solution Focus fits to deliberate practice
how that way of learning could be transferred to other areas where Solution Focus is applied, like e.g. leadership
the difficulty of measuring outcomes and the questions to ask
talking the language of our clients or talking about what’s meaningful for them
the Challenge of the week: „If you think you are effective, why not find out? Download the measures and begin tracking your outcomes. And see: Are you effective with all your clients? Is it to the degree you thought?”

How we develop our own practice and how we keep on exploring and developing Solution Focus has become more and more relevant and interesting to us lately. How can we stay curios and see our practice and Solution Focus as a verb – a practice that constantly keeps developing, where we learn from our clients, develop new things, let go of other things etc. – and not a noun – an approach that is like this or that with this question or that question. So, we are curios! How could we all embrace that inventor spirit even more and learn from each other and with each other, from our clients and with our clients, and keep on developing SF? Please share with us what you think and how you do that! Friendpower is stronger than willpower. So, let’s learn together! How could we transfer this way of learning to other areas where Solution Focus is used?
