Doing Something Different : Solution-Focused Brief Therapy Practices, Paperback / softback Book

Doing Something Different : Solution-Focused Brief Therapy Practices Paperback / softback

Edited by Thorana S. (Loyola University Maryland, USA) Nelson


Many books on solution-focused brief therapy provide histories, overviews, and uses of the approach.

Doing Something Different does not do any of those things.

Instead, it provides those interested in the solution-focused approach with a plethora of ideas for practice, training, and simply enjoying the solution-focused approach and its practice in therapy, consulting, coaching, and training.

It contains a varied and rich array of interventions, training ideas, uses with different populations and approaches, and resources written by contributors who represent many countries and viewpoints, and who are well known in the training and practice of the solution-focused approach.

Chapters are presented in simple language, as befits the solution-focused approach, and complement the many serious and whimsical sections of the book, which include practice and training ideas, favorite quotes and stories, "outrageous" moments in therapy, and a list of solution-focused songs.

Anyone who enjoys the approach in any manner should find something that grabs the interest and tickles the senses and sensibilities.

Readers will come away informed, thoughtful, and entertained.
