Handbook of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (Jossey-Bass Psychology) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Born out of the Second Annual Conference on Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, this comprehensive edited collection offers mental health practitioners a much needed resource for applying solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT) techniques. The expert contributors present the most current research information, illustrative case examples, and practical tools for developing the skills necessary to deliver effective solution-focused therapy across a variety of treatments settings.The book offers a framework for integrating the solution-focused model with the problem-focused approach that results in an increased number of therapeutic options available to clinicians.The contributors clearly demonstrate that SFBT addresses a wide range of presenting problems and this practical therapeutic model has proven to be effective across economic, gAnder, and racial lines. And, most importantly, at the very heart of the solution-focused techniques is rooted the spiritual values inherent to all productive therapeutic work.

Book News Annotation:

A handbook offering the first application resource to mental health practitioners interested in solution-focused brief therapy. The 25 therapists providing the framework for integrating problem and solution focused approaches into therapy suggest interesting alternatives to long-term psychotherapy and to some extent defend brief therapy against its theoretical opponents, particularly in the cases of chronic mental illness which is seen as untreatable by this type of therapy. Thus, the case studies make arguments against such assumptions and look at models in domestic violence treatment, hospital and school care, and grief therapy, as well as review available research on client and therapist perceptions.
