Book Description :
A trove of ready-to-use, solution-focused therapy techniques for work with children, adults, and families. A trove of ready-to-use, solution-focused therapy techniques for work with children, adults, and families on commonly encountered problems, The Therapist’s Treasure Chest is an easy-to-navigate pocket resource for finding a proven and age-appropriate therapeutic solution for the particular condition, symptom, or challenge a mental health professional is faced with on a given day of practice. Seasoned practitioners Andrea and Filip Caby introduce the foundational principles of solution-focused therapy, followed by an overview of therapeutic questioning techniques, both basic and advanced, and key advice on how to productively lead a therapeutic conversation. The third part of the Treasure Chest presents specific indications and interventions—hundreds of tried and tested approaches that have proven effective for symptoms and disorders from severe trauma to thumb-sucking, depression and anxiety to eating disorders. Each intervention includes an explanation of the theoretical background from which it has emerged, a practical guide to applying it with clients, and a section of helpful notes, advice, suggested settings, case examples, and contraindications.
