Product Description


"This book is a small treasure... By using short, easy-to-read chapters, the book explains their approach and covers some difficult ground in an approachable style... written as it is by three mature practitioners who first met the approach when it was a "new kid on the block", provides systemic practitioners with an opportunity to look again at an approach which is still very much around, well supported by evidence, appreciated by clients and now, as the authors might agree, also at a stage of significant maturity. We recommend it." - John Wheeler and Alex Millham, Context, October 2012


Product Description

Solution Focused Brief Therapy: 100 Key Points and Techniques provides a concise and jargon-free guide to the thinking and practice of this exciting approach, which enables people to make changes in their lives quickly and effectively. It covers:

  • The history and background to solution focused practice

  • The philosophical underpinnings of the approach

  • Techniques and practices

  • Specific applications to work with children and adolescents, (including school-based work) families, and adults

  • How to deal with difficult situations

  • Organisational applications including supervision, coaching and leadership.

  • Frequently asked questions

This book is an invaluable resource for all therapists and counsellors, whether in training or practice. It will also be essential for any professional whose job it is to help people make changes in their lives, and will therefore be of interest to social workers, probation officers, psychiatric staff, doctors, and teachers, as well as those working in organisations as coaches and managers.

4.0 out of 5 stars A comprehensive introduction to SFBT 19 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The authors have provided a comprehensive introduction to the theory and practice of SFBT. The writing is clear, the case examples helpful as illustrations, and the chapters brief. My one improvement point would be to remove some of the repetition of points. Overall the book gave me the picture of SFBT I needed. Many thanks.
