Goal Focused Interviewing

Goal Focused Interviewing Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Goal-focused interviewing emphasizes a constructive, collaborative approach between clients and workers that focuses on solutions and on competencies, rather than deficits. Maple (social work, U. of Michigan) uses an interactive framework in which he presents transcriptions of portions of interviews and, at particular points, asks the reader to select one of four interventions. He then provides a rationale for or against each intervention. Includes techniques for work with groups and families, and for the use of the silent interview.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

This book presents Frank F Maple's straightforward model for categorizing information elicited from clients, which he has adapted for social work practice with individuals, families and groups, reflecting the movement in social work toward the current need for solution-based and brief therapy.

Techniques for focusing on the competencies rather than the deficiencies of those who seek help and those who give it are emphasized, and readers are given the opportunity to decide upon appropriate interventions at key points of the interview.
