Description

Product Description

This groundbreaking book is the first to provide a comprehensive model for effectively blending the two main postmodern brief therapy approaches: solution focused and narrative therapies. It harnesses the power of both models—the strengths-based, problem-solving approach of SFT and the value-honoring and re-descriptive approach of narrative therapy—to offer brief, effective help to clients that builds on their strengths and abilities to envision and craft preferred outcomes.

Authored by a leading trainer, teacher, and practitioner in the field, the book provides an overview of the history of both models and outlines their differences, similarities, limitations, and strengths. It then demonstrates how to blend these two approaches in working with such issues as trauma, addictions, grief, relationship issues, family therapy, and mood issues. Each concern is illustrated using a case study from practice that focuses on individual adults, adolescents, children, or families. Sample client dialogues and forms are included to help the clinician guide clients in practice.

Each chapter concludes with a summary describing and reinforcing the principles of the topic and a personal exercise so the reader can experience the approach firsthand.

KEY FEATURES:

  • Describes how two popular postmodern therapy models are combined to create a powerful new therapeutic approach—the first book to do so
  • Includes case studies reflecting the model’s use with individual adults, children, adolescents, and families
  • Provides supporting dialogue and forms for practitioners
  • Authored by a leading figure in the application of SFT in a variety of settings
  • Presents an overview of the history of both models

Very good book! The author did a great job merging two post modern approaches. I like the capability to get the ebook, but it is not as easy to get it - especially on multiple device
But this book should be read by all who practice Narrative and Solution Focused,

Love this book! Metcalf makes her ideas immediately accessible through her use of case studies and activity sheets. I have already made use of some of the activities in this book and will continue to look to it for ideas for future sessions.
