Solutions Step by Step
A Substance Abuse Treatment Manual
A practical guide introducing the solution-focused approach to clinicians working with substance abusers.
Stressing solutions rather than pathology, clients' strengths and their strategies for past successes rather than their weaknesses or problems, this team utilizes a solution-building approach by discovering and exploring the ways substance abusers heal themselves. The book covers solution-focused therapy one step at a time. Bursting with case examples, quick tips, and questions "from the field," this is a reader-friendly manual.
“[A]n excellent reminder of the flexibility of the solutions approach and some very good and clear examples of how it has been used effectively to bring about change.” — DECP Debate
