DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Therapists often despair when considering using Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), so successful with adults, with children. Insoo Kim Berg and Therese Steiner show this despair to be unwarranted. These two master therapists lead readers through a series of conceptual and practical steps that elucidate just how the nonverbal, playful, and creative habits of children can support successful therapy based on the SFBT model. Children's Solution Work is necessary reading for anyone who associates with children and takes a concern for their development'linicians, social workers, teachers, daycare workers, and parents. By focusing on and expanding the bases for engagement and communication between adult and child, Berg and Steiner provide adaptable tools for diagnosis, therapy, and negotiating differences at home. Full of examples and case studies, the Children's Solution Work demonstrates creative techniques and strategies for working with children without relying exclusively on language or conceptual thinking. The application of these techniques is discussed in various contexts and situations, including adapting them to suit cases of children with uncommon needs. Berg and Steiner also address questions typically raised by clinicians about the use of SFBT with children and consider the usefulness of this form of SFBT when working with adolescents.

This book discusses the latest developments in the fields of family therapy, brief therapy, and psychotherapy training and practice.

Editor: Routledge

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

This user-friendly book equips school practitioners with practical skills and strategies for conducting student-driven interviews—conversations that invite students of all ages to take charge of school-behavior problems and build solutions based on their own strengths and resources. In contrast to traditional interviewing models that approach behavior problems by focusing on what is wrong and missing in students' lives, student-driven interviews help students discover and apply what is right and working in their lives—successes, strengths, values, and other "natural resources." In Conducting Student-Driven Interviews, readers will learn how to customize conversations one student at a time using ideas and techniques that have been field tested for application to real problems of real students in the real world of schools. The book's positive, student-driven approach is illustrated through dozens of real-life dialogues and examples involving a wide range of students and problems, and the author's irrepressible faith in students' ability to change jumps off of every page. School-based professionals of all backgrounds will find Conducting Student-Driven Interviews an invaluable roadmap for increasing student involvement and involving students in every aspect of their care, from goal development through evaluation of services.
