Many books on solution-focused brief therapy provide histories, overviews, and uses of the approach. Doing Something Different does not do any of those things. Instead, it provides those interested in the solution-focused approach with a plethora of ideas for practice, training, and simply enjoying the solution-focused approach and its practice in therapy, consulting, coaching, and training. It contains a varied and rich array of interventions, training ideas, uses with different populations and approaches, and resources written by contributors who represent many countries and viewpoints, and who are well known in the training and practice of the solution-focused approach. Chapters are presented in simple language, as befits the solution-focused approach, and complement the many serious and whimsical sections of the book, which include practice and training ideas, favorite quotes and stories, “outrageous” moments in therapy, and a list of solution-focused songs. Anyone who enjoys the approach in any manner should find something that grabs the interest and tickles the senses and sensibilities. Readers will come away informed, thoughtful, and entertained.

About the Author:

Thorana Nelson, PhD, has been practicing and teaching family therapy for over 25 years. She is currently a Professor of family therapy in the department of Family, Consumer, and Human Development at Utah State University; a clinical member and approved supervisor of AAMFT; a founding member and member of the Board of Directors of the Solution-Focused Brief Therapy Association; and an author and co-editor of several books.

Review:

"Doing Something Different is something delightfully different. For those who consider solution-focused therapy an over-simplistic therapy-by-numbers, it could be a revelation. Experienced practitioners, lots of them, working in a wide range of settings, demonstrate the high level of creativity the approach can inspire in therapists and in clients."Brian Cade, MFT, co-author, A Brief Guide to Brief Therapy

"Wide-ranging in scope and practical in application. This exciting book is a solution-focused treasure chest, chock-full of fresh, innovative ideas that therapists, trainers, supervisors, and managers will want to apply to their practice immediately. I highly recommend this book for those new to solution-focused brief therapy and experienced practitioners as well!" - Jim Duvall, Editor, Journal of Systemic Therapy; Director of Training, The Hincks-Dellcrest Institute, Toronto, Ontario

"This book shows Solution-focused Brief Therapy to be thriving, and it shows that it can fit many client groups and care agencies well. It also shows us the personal interpretations and local dialects used by many of its exponents, which are subtly altering it. Readers can go to it for sound new ideas for their practice, but--departing from the behavioural emphasis of the approach--the different ways of thinking are just as captivating. ...a good read for experienced professionals." - Robert Cumming, British Journal of Guidance & Counselling, Vol. 39, No. 3, June 2011

"The structure of [this book] is emblematic of the solution-focused approach. Each of the 76 chapters presents something different from the previous one; interventions, interesting quotes, anecdotes, case studies, diagrams, transcripts, tips and more are offered by 42 international contributors. The usefulness of creative practice in order to discover 'what works' is the theme which unifies the book. It is remarkable that although the chapters of the book are so colourful and the backgrounds of the contributors so diverse, the book manages to retain such a sense of coherence." -Kirsty Entwistle, University College London in Journal of Mental Health, February 2012
