  • Description
  • Details

This book not only provides an overview of the Solution Focused therapy model, its basic tenets, and theories; it also presents intimate interviews with expert practitioners-all of whom use SFT in their own practice.

Solution Focused Therapy (SFT) is a unique, goal-directed therapy aimed at helping clients regain autonomy by determining and achieving their own goals. Solution focused therapists encourage clients to focus on solutions, not problems, and help clients effectively plan how to reach their goals. Unlike other therapies, SFT holds an abiding belief in clients' abilities to know what is best for them, rather than have a therapist tell them.

The book offers a wealth of insight into the theory and practice of SFT, to help practitioners decide whether SFT is right for them and their clients. These experts offer details of their apprehensions, goals, breakthroughs, and overall experiences with the therapy.

Questions the experts address include:
* How did you discover that SFT was the model that fit your clients' needs?
* What characteristics of this model drew you towards it?
* How has SFT impacted your personal life?
* What is it about SFT that makes it so effective?
* What are your favorite cases and how did they affect your work as a therapist?
