This is an easy-to-read advice manual on how to apply solution-focused, brief therapy. The authors relate their own experiences in using 'Ericksonian' methods over many years. It's easy to dip into and, as a therapist, I found it a useful touchstone when fresh ideas are needed.

An inspiring book for any counselor. 16 Sept. 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book contains a number of simple, yet powerful, suggestions for helping counseling clients move from domination by their problem to reliance on their own solutions and strengths. The authors are inspiring and I intend to apply the perspectives in my healing work as a counselor.

Ignore the problem 5 Jan. 2010
By B. Young - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In a world where therapists seem to be so focused on the etiology of everything and every behavior out there. With managed care everyone wants to know the symptoms and what is the code. Is it bi-polar one, two, or NOS? To our rescue comes Bill and Michelle who present and idea about being positive and believing that a reframe can change everything. Perception is everything, truth is subjective.

Excellent work, the skills and techniques embodied in this book are easy to understand, but I would imagine they are hard to put into play.

Great book.

I was brought up and trained to find possibilities for solutions when there were challenges, and there always are challenges. It felt like home to me, to attend and complete Bill O'Hanlon's 20 hr Ericksonian Hypnotherapy Course and learn more about inner focus, the permissive and effective way for clients who want to to move forward._In_ _Search_ _of_ _Solutions_, as well as other books by O'Hanlon, are natural additions to my library now for me.
