5.0 out of 5 stars Self-help in becoming solution-focused, 6 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent addition to the solution-focused therapy literature. The shift from 'goals' to 'smallest steps' may be a valuable idea. I can imagine many people making good use of this easily readable format. I hope that it will be included in the UK's 'Books on Prescription' initiative.

U.S. Army Psychiatry in the Vietnam War: New Challenges in Extended Counterinsurgency Warfare - Substance Abuse, Heroin, Marijuana, Combat Stress, Breakdown in Soldier Morale and Discipline
Price: £5.95

4.0 out of 5 stars US Army psychiatric policy revealed?, 4 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I know from personal experience how difficult it is to obtain hard information about the medical and psychiatric aspects of this conflict. The author has gone to great trouble to collect and analyse such information as is now available. I learned much from reading it.
The Kindle version is not good. There are typographical errors and some of the tables are truncated so that the data cannot be understood.

Encounters with Steve de Shazer and Insoo Kim Berg: Inside Stories of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy
Encounters with Steve de Shazer and Insoo Kim Berg: Inside Stories of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy
by Manfred Vogt
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Encounters with Steve and Insoo, 7 Sept. 2015
47 essays compiled by people who knew Steve and Insoo well – some recording
the first appearance of some very familiar ideas. Every solution-focused
worker will find familiar ideas in this book. There are many poignant
memories here, reviving the understated style of Steve de Shazer and the
vivid energy of Insoo Kim Berg. Readers will also find unexpected and
interesting sidelights on both their characters and their practice. This
book is a charming way to examine the beginnings of solution-focused
approaches and their ground-breaking style of work.” Dr Alasdair J
Macdonald, Consultant Psychiatrist and Trainer, UK

This review is from: Dixie (MP3 Download)
I had some trouble understanding the Amazon music app and the download process. I do not favour cloud storage and so I wish to have items in my possession directly. This also aids transfer to other devices.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mr Morgan's last love - worth seeing, 12 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mr Morgan's Last Love [DVD] (DVD)
Liked the movie, although a more sophisticated ending would have been best. Looks like they ran over budget and had to cobble up the finish at the last minute. I could not find reference to this in the product details, but the subtitles (Dutch, French) could not be removed and were distracting.
