Practice to make a difference.

Children's Solution Work

Therapists often despair when considering using Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), so successful with adults, with children. Insoo Kim Berg and Therese Steiner show this despair to be unwarranted. These two master therapists lead readers through a series of conceptual and practical steps that elucidate just how the nonverbal, playful, and creative habits of children can support successful therapy based on the SFBT model. Children's Solution Work is necessary reading for anyone who associates with children and takes a concern for their development? Such as clinicians, social workers, teachers, day-care workers, and parents. By focusing on and expanding the bases for engagement and communication between adult and child, Berg and Steiner provide adaptable tools for diagnosis, therapy, and negotiating differences at home. Full of examples and case studies, the Children's Solution Work demonstrates creative techniques and strategies for working with children without relying exclusively on language or conceptual thinking. The application of these techniques is discussed in various contexts and situations, including adapting them to suit cases of children with uncommon needs. Berg and Steiner also address questions typically raised by clinicians about the use of SFBT with children and consider the usefulness of this form of SFBT when working with adolescents.
