If you work in the field of Child Protection/Family Services and feel discouraged and/or burned out, this is a must read. I read it on vacation last week, I could not put it down! It is well written and provides lots of case examples. The material is especially appealing and accessible if one is familiar with Solution Focused Brief Therapy principles. Bravo and well done to the authors!
Excellent book to learn the model and undertand the rationale behind it. Applied to my practice with good results. Highly recommend it if you are interested in working in a non-oppressive way with vulnerable individuals.
