What solution-focused theory lacks, is research. There is not a strong evidence base for this particular theory, because measurements tend to be problem-focused which goes against the strength based concepts of solution-focused therapy. Plus, there have been too many inconsistencies between research studies that have already been conducted, too many variables to account for, different populations to consider, and each individual social worker will have their own unique way of talking with and influencing how various clients, with differing stories, view the possibility for workable

Anhedonia is the lack of ability to experience positive effects in situations that should yield positive effects (Frewen 1). This state is measured using different scales such as the Hedonic Deficit and Interference Scale (HDIS), the Physical and Social Anhedonia Scale (PSAS), the Fawcett-Clark Pleasure Capacity Scale (FCPCS), and the Snaith-Hamilton Pleasure Scale (SHAPS). These scales measure positive and negative affective responses to different situations (Frewen 2).

Patient counselling and proper communication between patient and physicians are required to encourage patient to adhere to the
And they live in a gross and dirty world.” Good intentions cannot always lead to a good outcome. Very often the path a person may be stuck on simply does not have a good end, and it may be impossible to swerve off into a different path. In George’s and Lennie’s case, they were limited by a society which would not cooperate with many people, there would be people who would be looking for trouble. This quote plays a theme during the entire novella, especially in Lennie’s character. After
However, the prejudgements, rumors, misinterpretations, etc. often lead to making that person a target not because of their own self, but for their appearance. Those same reasons also lead to the lack of empathy in an individual. The Maycomb County folks are, “... so busy worrying about the next world they’ve never learned to live in this one, and you can look down the street and see the results.” (Lee p. 73). They are so busy worrying about protecting themselves that they even forget about the others.
The problem is more People believe the myths of ADD, such as, ADD is more about a lack of willpower, when in factuality, it is so much more complex than simply not wanting to focus.

Dissociation can be interpreted as an “emergency defense,” or a “shut off mechanism.” It is an attempt by the individual to prevent overwhelming flooding of consciousness at the time of trauma. The individual subconsciously cannot tolerate being present emotionally during the trauma but cannot control the situation, and protects him or herself from experiencing it in the moment by using dissociation. “Dissociative symptoms are failures of normal neurocognitive functioning and are considered disruptive, because there is a loss of information due to having experiences separated among personalities… The essential feature of the dissociative disorders is a disruption in the usually integrated functions of consciousness, memory, identity, or perception.”
