A step-by-step guide to conducting successful solution-focused therapy for survivors of traumatic experiences.

The book invites all professionals to change their focus from what is wrong to what is right with their clients, and from what isn’t working to what is working in their lives.
The book contains 101 solution-focused questions (and more) for help with trauma, with a focus on the clients’ preferred future and the pathways to get there.
