Overview

Inside 101 More Interventions in Family Therapy, you'll discover many revolutionary and flexible strategies for family counseling intervention that you can tailor, amend, and apply in your own practice. Designed to appeal to professionals of beginning, intermediate, or advanced level status, 101 More Interventions in Family Therapy caters to an even broader range of ethnic, racial, gender, and class contexts than did its well-received predecessor, 101 Interventions in Family Therapy. You'll also find that this volume encompasses a wider variety of family therapy orientations, including strategic, behavioral, family of origin, solution-focused, and narrative.

In 101 More Interventions in Family Therapy, you'll have at your fingertips a collection of favorite, tried-and-true interventions compiled, revised, and delivered to you by the professionals who use them--the clinicians themselves. You'll gain valuable insight into:


• effective and useful assessment strategies

• therapy that addresses school and career problems

• questions to use in solution-focused therapy

• questions to use in narrative therapy

• ideas for resolving intergenerational issues

Too often, the in-the-trenches accounts you need to help add variety and a high success rate to your own practice come to you piecemeal in journals or newsletters. But in 101 More Interventions in Family Therapy, you'll find 101 handy, easy-to-read, and fun ways to modify your own therapeutic styles for a truly diverse variety of clientele and settings right where you want them--in one volume, in one place. Even after a few chapters, you'll discover 101 reasons to be happy with the prospect of improving your practice. Specifically, some of the interesting tips and techniques you'll read about include:


• applying theater techniques to family therapy

• using an alarm clock and rubber band as props in clinical practice with children, couples, and families

• utilizing the “play baby” intervention to coach parents on ways to address their child(ren)'s concerns

• adopting a “Columbo therapy” approach--one in which the therapist acts confused and asks questions out of a genuine curiosity about the client's experience--to take a one-down position with clients

• creating a safe space in therapy and helping clients transfer it into their lives

• using homework to increase the likelihood of producing desired therapeutic outcomes
