About the Course:

This is a delightful book bringing together, in an easy-to-understand style, both problem oriented and solution oriented therapies. It’s a guidebook to strategic solution focused therapy. The book explains how the strategic emphasis on clarification of the problem and interruption of what does not work can complement and enhance the solution focused emphasis on amplification of what does work. The text reviews the theory and presents specific treatment techniques. Case examples illustrate how the model has been used in brief, intermittent, and single-session therapy in a managed care setting.

This course is based on the book, Doing What Works in Brief Therapy: A Strategic Solution Focused Approach created by Quick, Ellen, Ph.D.
