Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Its Effective use in Agency Settings This essential book chronicles the lessons learned when a substance abuse counseling program switches its theoretical orientation from problem-focused. It details the technical aspects of the changeover (theory, techniques, interventions, politics, and team design) as well as the personal struggles the team endured and the successes they enjoyed. In addition, it demonstrates how solution-focused therapy can be applied to both clinical and administrative work, while addressing questions and concerns, providing general information, and helping to understand the subtleties and idiosyncrasies of solution-focused brief therapy.
