Postmodern solution-focused therapy approach might work well with a behaviorist theoretical orientation because behaviorists and solution-focused therapy ignore the root causes of a problem and focus on the solution to the problem. Two other kinds of postmodern approaches are the narrative approach, thoughts and behaviors resulting the client "story," and the language centered approach, solutions evolving through "talk and collaboration."
