Since 1966, at MRI we have been teaching, researching and putting into practice Brief Problem Solving Therapy.
Since 2008, we have continued this work with Karin Schlanger, director and sole disciple of the creators of this therapy model.


Since the birth of the Brief Problem Solving Model, our team of professionals has wanted to continue with the work of research and dissemination of this model of therapy. These are our best papers.
