The process of positive psychotherapy works to resolve the key, actual and basic conflicts of the clients. Although many practitioners resolve these conflicts in their own way, standard and effective methods are needed. The aim of this study is to investigate the Trust-PHAL Method, which includes resolving actual conflict in five stages with five capabilities. There are five capabilities that we use in this method to resolve actual conflict: trustworthiness, politeness, honesty, achievement, loyalty. In other words, the method can be expressed as Trust (trustworthiness) P (Politeness) H (Honesty)A (Achievement) L(Loyalty). Each capability used is consistent with the five phases of positive psychotherapy. In the study, an example is given of how the Trust-PHAL Method is used in the psychotherapy process.
