This study examined the effect of the use of Brief-Solution Focused Therapy procedures on a young adolescent male, whose history suggested alcohol involvement on a daily basis. The data given during the baseline, intervention and follow-up phases, were obtained using the index of alcohol involvement scale, developed by Hudson.
The A-B-A single system research design was used to analyze the data in all three phases. The conclusion drawn from the findings suggests that a series of brief –solution focused therapy reduced the alcohol involvement of the young adolescent male. The result of a student t statistic test also showed that there was a statistical significance between the baseline phase and the intervention phase, thereby supporting the conclusion of this study.
