Synopses & Reviews
After giving a history of brief therapy and describing the basic philosophical assumptions, the authors concentrate on ways of intervening that are common to all brief therapists, including framing, pattern, paradoxical, metamorphical, hypnotic and family interventions.
"With brief therapy finally getting deserved interest, the time is ripe for an overview. Cade and O'Hanlon state that they 'decided to collaborate on a book that would summarize the main elements, the ideas, principles, attitudes, and techniques associated with brief therapy.' Read this work--you'll be glad they did, and you did." --John H. Weakland
Includes bibliographical references (p. 185-194) and index.
