Book Description :

A step-by-step guide to conducting successful solution-focused therapy for common anxiety problems. This book aims to help therapists working with clients who struggle with anxiety by offering them solution-focused (SF) viewpoints and skills. The book invites all professionals to change their focus from what is wrong to what is right with their clients, and from what isn’t working to what is working in their lives. The book contains 101 solution-focused questions (and more) for help with anxiety, with a focus on the clients’ preferred future and the pathways to get there. As Insoo Kim Berg put it in her foreword for Fredrike Bannink’s highly successful 1001 Solution-Focused Questions: Handbook for Solution-Focused Interviewing, “SFBT is based on the respectful assumption that clients have the inner resources to construct highly individualized and uniquely effective solutions to their problems.” From the more than 2,000 questions she has collected over the years, Bannink has selected the 101 most relevant for each subject. Much of the material in the 3-volume set is unique and did not appear in the earlier work, inviting therapists to open themselves to a new light on interviewing clients.

Book Description :

Solution-focused therapy is an evidenced-based practice that focuses on creating conversations that build solutions, rather than solve problems. Learning Solution-Focused Therapy: An Illustrated Guide teaches readers how to practice and become competent in conducting solution-focused therapy, an area of growing interest as the emphasis on brief therapy increases. Critical to the book's learning strategy is the generous use of case illustrations that are detailed, rich, and instructive without being overly didactic. The case approach provides an effective means for seeing concepts put into practice, and since medicine is becoming more patient-focused, the solution-focused therapy model is highly relevant. Organized to show how a solution-focused interview is conducted, the book presents the basic model and goes on to apply this model in psychopharmacology, addiction, supervision and consultation. Each chapter combines readings, solution-focused questions, case illustrations, learning exercises and video demonstrations (available online), which together constitute a comprehensive course in this therapeutic modality. Moreover, the author's conversational writing style makes the tenets and techniques accessible and interesting to a wide variety of clinicians. Learning Solution-Focused Therapy: An Illustrated Guide will appeal to clinicians who wish to enhance their skills and support their patients' growth in a positive way.

Book Description :

“Blundo and Simon have successfully outlined how a solution-focused perspective can be a powerful tool for case managers. Their understanding and presentation is based upon practice scenarios that are real and applied...They clearly demonstrate the impact of ‘thinking and language’ and the importance of building a collaborative relationship with clients. Their work challenges the traditional theory-driven interventions that focus on problems and arrive at a diagnosis . They encourage a ‘shift’ to a co-constructive partnership that requires a practitioner to respect that clients are ‘experts of their own lives’...They provide a clear step-wise discussion of techniques and strategies that can be employed working with individuals and families in case management settings. This book is a must read.” -Lawrence T. Force, PhD. LCSW-R Professor of Psychology, Mount Saint Mary College, Newburgh, NY From the Foreword Solution-focused practice is a paradigm that stresses client abilities, strengths, and individual goals rather than disability. Written by a team of educator/practitioners noted for their expertise in solution-focused therapy, this “how-to” text for social work, counseling, and psychology students guides current and future case managers in learning this strengths-based, collaborative approach to case management. It discusses both the philosophical basis for solution-focused casework and demonstrates how it is ideally suited for the case management process. The book is based on teaching materials the authors have developed and used in their classes and workshops with undergraduate and graduate students and professionals. The text incorporates new research and theoretical developments in solution-focused therapy as well as actual practice scenarios demonstrating the process of building a collaborative relationship with individual clients and families. Replete with strategies and tools for practicing solution-focused case management, the text describes such essential skills as identifying goals, monitoring progress, working with other agencies, and transitioning out of treatment. It discusses issues related to ethical practice and presents strategies for self-care. Additionally, the book addresses diversity and social justice and their relationships to solution-focused practice. Student exercises help to reinforce knowledge. The text will assist case managers in a variety of settings—hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation facilities, community-based mental health agencies, schools, prisons, court systems, and shelters for the homeless and victims of domestic violence—to partner with their clients towards finding strengths-based and solution-focused approaches to resolving issues in a positive way. Key Features: Authored by noted experts in solution-focused education and practice Facilitates a reframing of casework and case management around client strengths and resources Provides specific case examples that allow readers to troubleshoot and apply solution-focused principles to practice Includes student exercises throughout the book

Book Description :

Why on Earth Do I Feel This Way? brings an entirely new perspective to the field of anxiety and mental health and will make a drastic impact that no other treatment intervention has done before. As a psychologist who has worked in various clinical venues, I found there to be a pattern of anxiety at the root of the symptoms my clients were experiencing. This was the same pattern for clients who were battling addiction and experiencing mood disorders, schizophrenia, and even personality disorders. Although each case was unique, I would hear the same questions repeated: “Why me? Why on earth do I feel this way?” I stopped focusing on the specific symptoms of my clients that would qualify them for a mental health diagnosis but focused on how and why they were experiencing anxiety. I was then able to recognize another factor that was precipitating the anxiety: a lack of control. Focusing on control, or lack thereof, as presented by control theory in the book, can supplement the work that people have been doing to manage their mental health and better help them understand why they have been making progress in their work. It will also provide a preventive approach to managing anxiety and mental health moving forward and increasing self-esteem and self-confidence by understanding what anxiety is, where it comes from, and what to do with it. The information provided in this book can be utilized by various demographics, including adolescents, adults, parents (parents can also apply these tools for younger-age children), teachers, and other school personnel. There is a lack of preventive measures in place to help address anxiety at the forefront and prevent it from progressing into more severe mental health disorders or prevent students from engaging in maladaptive, harmful, and risky behaviors. Although schools have started taking additional steps to address mental health, they are still struggling to keep up with the need for services and are only targeting students who are at risk or suffering. Why on Earth Do I Feel This Way? provides students, parents, and teachers with a road map of how to effectively manage and get control over their anxiety.

The first edition of Cognitive Behavior Therapy of DSM-IV Personality Disorders broke new ground.

The book then guides clinicians in each step of the treatment process--from assessment to case conceptualization to selection and implementation of intervention. Case material is used to illustrate this process with the most recent developments from Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Therapy, Schema Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Analysis System of Psychotherapy, Mindfulness-based therapies, and Dialectic Behavior Therapy.

Book Description :

Incorporating brief therapy with an innovative “boot camp” approach to help clients overcome three of the most prevalent issues in therapy. In some cases long-term therapy that seeks to assess a client’s history and gain insight over the course of many sessions isn’t always possible. Immediate behavior change and concrete steps to fix the problem at hand are sometimes more practical and desirable. Grounded in a results-oriented brief therapy model, this user-friendly guide presents the author’s “boot camp” approach—focusing on a client’s immediate behavior, helping them to do things differently, take action, concentrate on process, and use targeted goals and homework to jump-start and motivate them into taking risks and breaking patterns. Following this approach, Taibbi walks readers through session-by-session treatment “maps” for achieving solutions to three of the most common issues in therapy.

Book Description :

Learning Solution-Focused Therapy: An Illustrated Guide bridges the gap between the traditional medical model of problem-focused assessment and treatment and the newer, increasingly popular strength-based treatment approach. The author's objective is to provide another therapeutic dimension, thus enhancing problem-focused treatment and supporting competency in this strength-based modality. Psychiatrists, pediatricians, family practitioners, nurses, and other mental health providers will appreciate the how-to focus of the text, its compelling, case-based approach to learning, and its informal, conversational writing style. The book's structure and features are designed to facilitate learning: The book begins with an overview of the core tenets of solution-focused therapy, starting with solution-focused case review and examining both solution-focused core assumptions and core questions. This helps the reader understand the foundation of this modality and put it into context. A primary objective is building the skills necessary to effective solution-based therapy, and the book includes instruction on conducting a solution-focused interview, establishing a framework of strengths and resources, developing a yes-set, negotiating goals, amplifying ambivalence, and dealing with crisis. Solution-focused techniques are integrated within supervision and consultation, an approach that clinicians who work with students and residents, and supervisors who work within agencies will find immensely useful. Solution-focused psychopharmacotherapy and addiction therapy merit complete chapters, providing information that clinicians will find invaluable when applying solution-focused techniques in these situations. The case illustrations vividly render the dialogue of patient and therapist, and are accompanied by detailed explanations and commentary in italics to help the reader learn how to practice this model of treatment. Companion videos (available online) present commonly used techniques that illustrate key features of solution-focused therapy in a compelling and enlightening way. Learning Solution-Focused Therapy: An Illustrated Guide provides learning exercises and case illustrations that will help the reader implement practical strategies immediately with patients, students, supervisees and trainees. Practical, engaging, and evidence-based, this book will enhance the clinician's ability to connect with and help the patient in a positive way.
