Elliott Connie has become well-known in the psychology community for his dedication to improving people's lives. In traditional therapy, there's always been much less emphasis on solutions that just talking about the problems. However, Elliott implements Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) to do the opposite.
As you'll find online, SFBT is "a goal-directed collaborative approach to psychotherapeutic change that is conducted through direct observation of clients' responses to a series of precisely constructed questions."
In our interview, we had the pleasure of learning more about Elliott, as well as the ways in which he views the world. We started with his background, and the trials and tribulations he faced as a young man, particularly in regards to his relationship with his father. Instead of disregarding the hardships in his life, he's come to embrace them and place them at the core of his ethos. Elliott isn't happy out of ignorance, he's happy out of complete awareness - and wants the same for the people he helps.
