The revolution of Problem-Solving Brief Therapy from the MRI
The Brief Therapy Center started in 1967 at the Mental Research Institute (MRI) in Palo Alto, CA as a research project by Richard Fisch in collaboration with John Weakland and Paul Watzlawick (John Haley and Don Jackson also participated in the beginning). Their idea: cultivate an quick and effective therapy method, which we now know today as Problem-Solving Brief Therapy. Today, the Brief Therapy Center continues as the institution leading the promotion and exposure of this form of therapy.
Thanks to its efficiency, this method has gained a significant amount of global popularity; professionals across the world come to our facilities and participate in our trainings to improve their therapeutic skills.
Taking into account the global interest in learning the model, we've opened partner offices of the BTC in different parts of the world: Mexico, Paraguay, and Chile. We're excited to announce that two new offices will open up in Argentina and Peru in 2020.
The Brief Therapy Center is headquartered in the United States in Palo Alto, CA under the direction of Karin Schlanger.
