Abstract: Aimed to research the effectiveness of solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT) in China by meta-analysis, thir-ty three studies were identified with a total sample size of 1147 participants. The results showed that: 1) SFBT demonstrated large, and positive treatment effects favoring SFBT group on the outcome measures. An overall mean effect size estimate for immediate effect was 0.99. An overall mean effect size estimate for follow-up effect was 1.07; 2) There was no significant correlation between year of publication and immediate effect; 3) The over-all mean effect size estimates of SFBT were large in mainland ( d=1.03) and in Taiwan (d=0.92) ; 4) The overall mean effect size estimates of SFBT were also large in school settings (d=1.01) and in medical settings (d=0.94) . The similar results were founded for different kinds of outcome problems. The results revealed that SFBT not on-ly can solve clients' problems but also can improve clients' ability to solve problems by themselves. In future, the application of SFBT can spread in many settings, especially in primary and middle school settings for main-land and in medical settings for Taiwan. Similarly, more studies are needed to examining the effectiveness of SF-BT for externalizing behavior problems.
