Doing What Works in Brief Therapy
A Strategic Solution Focused Approach
- Ellen Quick, Kaiser Permanente, San Diego, CA, USA
This book is both a set of procedures for the therapist and a philosophyâ one that is shared with clients and one that guides the work of the therapist. This second edition continues its excellence in offering clinicians a guide to doing what works in brief therapy- for whom, and when and how to use it. Psychotherapy that follows these guidelines validates the clientâs most important concerns â and it often turns out to be surprisingly brief. Author, Ellen Quick integrates strategic and solution focused therapy and includes guidelines for tailoring technique and interventions to client characteristics and preferences. With clinically rich examples throughout, this book offers applications for couples, including indications for individual or conjoint sessions.
