Focus on Solutions

A Health Professional's Guide

by Kidge Burns

Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) promotes collaborative work and positive outcomes. It is an approach that can be used in acute hospitals as well as with clients who are seen as outpatients or in the community. Written in an accessible style with over seventy case examples Focus on Solutions shows how SFBT can help people who are suffering from voice or memory difficulties, a stammer, a stroke, HIV, traumatic brain injury or illnesses such as cancer or Parkinson' s disease.

The book provides a practical framework as to how individuals, families and groups can begin to work on their strengths by focusing on the solutions rather than the problems in their lives. Focus on Solutions contains many useful ideas for experienced practitioners and those new to solution focused work, which is of growing importance in the health service as well as business and education. Therapists, doctors, nurses or psychologists will find this book an invaluable contribution to the field of reflective practice.
