Overview

A practical guide introducing the solution-focused approach to clinicians working with substance abusers.
Stressing solutions rather than pathology, clients' strengths and their strategies for past successes rather than their weaknesses or problems, this team utilizes a solution-building approach by discovering and exploring the ways substance abusers heal themselves. The book covers solution-focused therapy one step at a time. Bursting with case examples, quick tips, and questions "from the field," this is a reader-friendly manual.

Discusses a therapy based on focusing on clients' strengths & strategies for past successes, using case examples.

Editorial Reviews

DECP Debate
“[A]n excellent reminder of the flexibility of the solutions approach and some very good and clear examples of how it has been used effectively to bring about change.”
Booknews
The first part offers a step-by-step guide through a typical case, from the initial phone call to discharge. Part Two describes how to use a solution-focused approach with various treatment situations such as chronic relapse, DWI offenders, mandated clients, group therapy, and female substance abusers.
