Interviewing for solutions by Peter De Jong( Book )

81 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 1,237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written in a clear, informative, and informal style, Interviewing for solutions features a unique solutions-oriented approach to basic interviewing in the helping professions. Peter DeJong and Insoo Kim Berg's proven approach views clients as competent, helps them to visualize the changes they want, and builds on what they are already doing that works. Throughout the book, the authors present models for solution-focused work, illustrated by examples and supported by research. Resources such as an instructional DVD with integrated exercises, demonstration interviews, tools for solution building with clients, and more are available to accompany the text."--Publisher's website
Family-based services : a solution-focused approach by Insoo Kim Berg( Book )

10 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in English and Dutch and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is for those who "work in the trenches" of child welfare and family services. Caseworkers often go into the worst situations and have insufficient time to make effective interventions. By applying the principles of brief, solution-focused therapy to family-based services, social service workers can deliver treatment that is cost-effective, humane, and empowering to families." "For professionals unfamiliar with the theory and concepts of brief therapy, Berg describes the process in a step-by-step fashion. She gives clear guidelines on what to cover in assessment interviews, how to talk to clients so they will listen to you and feel heard by you, how to conduct yourself in a client's home, what to do about dangerous situations, and how a solution-focused approach can be adapted to a variety of service programs." "Case examples illustrate different techniques, and sample assessment forms are included, which can be adapted to different agency needs. Workers can engage clients in productive problem solving by concentrating on what clients do right, rather than what they do wrong. With this book in hand, workers have a useful tool for empowering families."--Jacket
Working with the problem drinker : a solution-focused approach by Insoo Kim Berg( Book )

14 editions published between 1992 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A detailed program for psychotherapists-the solution-focused, brief-therapy, problem-solving method of working with problem-drinker clients. At a time when the accepted standard treatment for alcoholism is long-term and expensive, solution-focused therapy, as developed at the Brief Family Therapy Center in Milwaukee, offers a brief and cost-effective alternative. Insoo Kim Berg and Scott D. Miller believe that a focus on solutions, rather than pathology, is the most constructive strategy for working with problem drinkers; their foremost concern is with what works. To this end they don't reject traditional treatment programs; rather, they view them as one part of a flexible and multidimensional approach to alcohol abuse treatment. The authors successfully utilize solution-focused therapy in their work with problem drinkers, but it is their philosophy of working with clients-and within clients' belief systems-to encourage change that is at the heart of their model. The model, grounded in the philosophy of solution-focused brief therapy, introduces a paradigmatic change in the approach to substance abuse treatment. Rather than treating a problem drinker, Berg and Miller work with clients to treat problem drinking. The authors' refreshing blend of respect for their clients and optimism about their ability to stop abusive drinking offers hope to clients who can't fit into traditional long-term programs or who have given up on themselves. This book shows how clients can be helped to construct a future where drinking or substance abuse is no longer a problem. Solution-focused therapy, based on respect for and collaboration with the client, concentrates on success and solutions. Therapists develop goals with the client, rather than imposing 'appropriate' treatment objectives. If one solution doesn't work, the technique-not the client-is blamed and client and therapist go on to 'do something different.' The authors' model is much more than a list of interventions; it is a multi-faceted approach to treatment, which can adapt to anything that works, whether brief therapy, AA, or more formal inpatient programs"

Brief coaching for lasting solutions by Insoo Kim Berg( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Like so many helping professionals today, coaches are discovering that the most effective treatment plan is not always the one that takes the most time. Perhaps more so than in any other situation, coaching allows practitioners to quickly forge collaborative relationships with their clients and help them maximize their performance in work and in life. Brief Coaching for Lasting Solutions teaches coaches how to conduct conversations that are most useful to clients in achieving their goals within a brief period of time. The authors, two of the leading practitioners of the brief coaching method, masterfully guide readers through the steps of this process-from the initial meeting to follow-up sessions to troubleshooting setbacks-while illustrating essential skills with ample case examples. This book is written for coaches who want to reduce the time it takes to provide effective coaching while making the best use possible of resources the client brings to the table. At the same time it is written for the benefit of today's clients, so many of whom want to avoid coaching that is time-intensive and costly, and instead seek coaching that is organized, efficient, and affordable. Whether your clients seek a solution to a specific problem or strive toward a more general life goal, this invaluable resource will put you on the path to brief coaching success."--Publisher's website
