Drawing on contemporary research and the author's own extensive experience, the fully revised and updated new edition includes:
discussion of recent developments relevant to research and training; a new chapter on challenges to SFT and the integration of SFT with other therapeutic approaches; extended discussion on ethical issues; topical exploration of the application of SFT with patients with personality disorders and dementias; contemporary research on solution-focused coaching and approaches to organizational change; new case material
This highly practical guide should be on the desk of every student or trainee studying this strongly supported, growing approach. It is also a useful resource for practitioners wanting to update their core skills and knowledge.
