The case of Joe and Beth articulates that both are aware of the problems facing their relationship and knows why they have opted for counseling. It is clear that, Joe and Beth are not interested in what happened or where they have been; they are rather concerned with where they want be. In this case, both have agreed on a divorce, and; therefore, Solution-Focused Family Therapy is ideal because focuseson what the client wants or where the client wants to go and not on the clients past, or causes of the problems(Nelson, 2010).

Predictions of population explosions and resource constraints (e.g., Ehrlich 1968) led experts to identify birth control as the primary means of addressing the perceived global problem of overpopulation. The scholars and experts from rich western nations dominated the family planning related narratives, alternative social science voices that pointed to poverty as the cause of high birth rates in developing nations (and therefore dependence by the poor on large families to provide productive labor and possible old age security) were crowded out and funding from development agencies was channeled aggressively into birth control rather than into poverty reduction
