Doing what Works in Brief Therapy
A Strategic Solution Focused Approach
This guide to strategic focused therapy explains how the strategic emphasis on clarification of the problem, and interruption of what does not work, can complement and enhance the solution focused emphasis on amplification of what does work. The theory is reviewed, and specific treatment techniques presented. The text aims to help the reader to focus on critical issues with precision, and to construct creative, individualized interventions that amplify what works and interrupt what does not. Strategic therapy and solution focused therapy are integrated, and the text provides applications for couples - indications for separate or joint sessions.
