9780333946473: Brief Counselling: Narratives and Solutions

This innovative and highly practical text provides an introduction to solution and narrative approaches to brief counselling and demonstrates how they may successfully be combined to create solution talk with clients. Solution talk is a highly flexible and effective way of empowering people to use their own potential for positive change, for coping with what they cannot change, and for re-creating their lives and even their identities.

Judith Milner and Patrick O'Byrne compare and contrast solution talk with other more traditional or problem-oriented approaches to illustrate how a collaborative, co-constructive and empowering way of working may help clients to meet their goals quickly, painlessly and with long-lasting effects. They outline the philosophy, practice principles and specific techniques of solution talk and discuss what to do if no immediate progress is apparent. Through detailed case examples, they illustrate how the approach may be used in client work with a wide range of issues connected to family life, school and work, health, personal safety and leisure.

Brief Counselling: Narratives and Solutions will be an essential text for all trainees and practitioners in counselling, psychotherapy and other health-related professions interested in brief therapeutic approaches and working creatively with clients.

Review:

It's concise and focused - a characteristic not often associated with therapy textbooks...the book contains many ideas that would be extremely useful in goal planning with service users in a wide range of situations.' - Sharon Lee Cuthbert, Mental Health Today

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. 207 pages. This book presents both solution focused and narrative approaches to brief counseling. Acknowledging the expertise of ordinary people in devising solutions to their problems, it reflects the current interest in very brief therapeutic work, which is driven partly by economic considerations and partly by its non-pathologizing ethos. Stressing the role of meaning-making, creativity, and imagination, the book provides a comprehensive account of its subject using extensive case examples to show how solution focused and narrative counseling can be applied across a variety of lifes problems and client issues. This item ships from La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 9780333946473
