Synopsis

Examines the idea that words possess a "magical" quality that has been lost to the modern world, a notion expressed by Freud in his quote "words were originally magic". This text demonstrates ways in which words and numbers can be used in solution-focused therapy.

About the Author

The late Steve de Shazer, founder and director of the Brief Family Therapy Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was a psychotherapist, author of six renowned books, and developer and pioneer of solution-focused brief therapy.
