The systemic-solution focused approach has its basics in different kinds of scientific disciplines and not only combines a plurality of theories, concepts and orientations in itself but also possesses various parallels to other approaches. The closeness to significant current concepts of social work, like the lifeworld orientation or the social-space orientation, as well as the systemic attitude behind it, makes the approach attractive for the implementation in several areas of practical social work. The present work deals with the relevance, the challenges and the methods of application of the approach within the social work with families. While the theoretical part provides an introduction in theoretical and methodic approaches, the empirical data contains a survey of the parallels to related theoretical concepts, the praxis methods and interventions, the advantages and limits of practical use, the compatibility with the profession, the actuality and the self-appropriation of systemic contents in practical experience. The interview as a qualitative method builds the basis of the empirical survey. Overall a systemic ? solution focused attitude emerges as meaningful, profitable and currently relevant especially in the context of social work with families. In combination with other theories and methods, possible limits for practical interventions can be compensated, whereby the approach could be able to live up to the variety of existing problems.
