    DescriptionSolution-Focused Therapy (SFT) is often misunderstood to be no more than the techniques it is famous for - pragmatic, future-oriented questions that encourage clients to reconceptualize their problems and build on their strengths. Yet when applied in a "one-size-fits-all" manner, these techniques may produce disappointing results and leave clinicians wondering where they have gone wrong. This volume adds a vital dimension to the SFT literature, providing a rich theoretical framework to facilitate nonformulaic clinical decision making. The focus is on how attention to emotional issues, traditionally not emphasized in brief, strengths-based interventions, can help "unstick" difficult situations and pave the way to successful solutions.

    Review quote
    "Lipchik dispels all the stereotypes of Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT), so that even SFT skeptics will want to give the model a second look. Her version cherishes the uniqueness of clients, is nonformulaic, emotion-focused, and privileges the client-therapist relationship over technique... Replete with rich case illustrations (which heretofore I would have assumed to be 'too complex' for SFT), the volume has left me with the imprint of a master teacher and clinician and has greatly enriched my practice." - Douglas H. Sprenkle, Purdue University, Indiana, USA "At last, someone has written a book that integrates the practical simplicity of solution-focused work with the crucial presence of emotion and relationship. Lipchik liberates our understanding of feelings from cumbersome theoretical frameworks, and shows how they are a basic currency in the therapeutic exchange... Eminently practical and theoretically illuminating." - Stephen Gilligan, in private practice, USA, and author of Therapeutic Trances and The Courage to Love
