This paper relates the values of Psychiatric Rehabilitation (PsyR) to the strategies of solution-focused therapy (SFT), exploring the applicability of SFT in a PsyR setting. A review of the literature demonstrates that SFT complements the values and principles of PsyR and is a viable course of intervention throughout recovery for empowering persons with severe mental illness. The specific application of SFT to supervision and case management is examined.
