Beyond Technique in Solution-Focused Therapy: Working with Emotions and the Therapeutic Relationship (Guilford Family Therapy)

Beyond Technique in Solution-Focused Therapy: Working with Emotions and the Therapeutic Relationship (Guilford Family Therapy) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Solution-focused therapy is often misunderstood to be no more than the techniques it is famous for—pragmatic, future-oriented questions that encourage clients to reconceptualize their problems and build on their strengths. Yet when applied in a "one-size-fits-all" manner, these techniques may produce disappointing results and leave clinicians wondering where they have gone wrong. This volume adds a vital dimension to the SFT literature, providing a rich theoretical framework to facilitate nonformulaic clinical decision making. The focus is on how attention to emotional issues, traditionally not emphasized in brief, strengths-based interventions, can help "unstick" difficult situations and pave the way to successful solutions.
