#5 Question: Please explain your answer. I thought that a Miracle Client is often encouraged to anticipate difficulities of his/her therapy process

#7Question: I thought the answer was Presuppositional. please reference your answer so I can read/follow-up on the source

Check your textbook for Miracle Client. I can't find that term in relation to SFBT. In my education, a "miracle client" was someone performing a "flight into health" pattern where they improve too quickly in order to satisfy/appease/receive the affirmation of their therapist. It may be a term specific to the authors/theorists you are studying. Same for the next question...

For the type of question, it really is almost a "none of the above" from what I've been trained in SFBT. This would have been an Exception or Past Success question: When was there a time you didn't feel this way? What was different? Or, Was there a time when you handled this type of trigger in a healthier way?

Examples of the three:
Miracle: If you could take away one symptom, with a magic wand, what would be it?
Presupposition: If that symptom disappeared, how would that change your life? What would look different? What different choices would you have?
Scaling: On a one to ten scale, how would you rate your symptom?
Transference isn't a Solution-Focused idea.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
