Pathways to change : brief therapy solutions with difficult adolescents by Matthew D Selekman( Book )
23 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and Chinese and held by 706 libraries worldwide
Few therapists dispute the difficulties in treating "troublesome" or "reluctant" adolescents. Filling a gap in the literature, this volume specifically addresses the clinician's needs for working with this difficult population. Matthew D. Selekman presents a Solution-Oriented Brief Family Therapy approach, a highly pragmatic and innovative therapy model for working with these challenging cases. Encouraging therapeutic improvisation and incorporating the use of humor, Selekman demonstrates how the clinician can capitalize on the strengths and resources of family members, peers, and other involved mental health professionals to resolve the client's presenting problems rapidly. His approach artfully integrates cutting-edge therapeutic ideas from Steve de Shazer, Michael White, Tom Andersen, and the Galveston group. Dispelling the notion that the Solution-Oriented Brief Therapy model is merely a "band-aid" approach, the author demonstrates powerful methods for facilitating systemic, lasting change. Pathways to Change includes many helpful features that enable mental health and addiction professionals to conduct effective brief therapy successfully with difficult adolescents and their families. Selekman provides detailed guidelines for therapeutic task design and selection, purposeful systemic interviewing, empirically based strategies for engaging difficult adolescents, and ways to collaborate with involved helping professionals from larger systems. He also presents a blueprint for how to conduct his Solution-Oriented Parenting group, which can be utilized as an alternative to regular family therapy or when therapists are unable to engage the adolescents in treatment. Incorporating case examples and actual interview transcripts to highlight key therapeutic techniques, Selekman presents a comprehensive, ecosystemic therapeutic approach that provides useful therapeutic options for working with a challenging population. Pathways to Change is an important resource for psychologists, psychotherapists, social workers, addiction professionals, family therapists, and anyone working with difficult adolescents and their families

Abrir caminos para el cambio : soluciones de terapia breve para adolescentes con problemas by Matthew D Selekman( Book )
8 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in Spanish and held by 29 libraries worldwide
¿Cómo ayudar a los adolescentes cuando su nuevo mundo de relaciones y actividades les tiende trampas difíciles de evitar, como las drogas, el alcohol, las "heroicas" transgresiones de toda clase de normas... o cuando su integración social provoca graves conflictos personales y con la familia? Matthew Selekman, un muy experimentado terapeuta familiar que ha trabajado exitosamente con problemas de familia de todos los estratos sociales, ofrece aquí una serie de estrategias eminentemente prácticas para ayudar a los adolescentes y sus familia a suerar graves crisis y problemas. El método de la terapia de familia breve centrada en la solución de problemas evita hurgar en los aspectos negativos. Apostando por los potenciales de la voluntad de cambio, el terapeuta puede contar con la cooperación del grupo familiar en la elaboración de estrategias y la fijación de metas realistas que las familias son capaces de poner en práctica. El modelo aquí presentado integra las ideas de De Shazer, de Michael White (del grupo MRI), de Tom Andersen y del grupo Houston-Galveston. En una gran variedad de casos clínicos se ejemplifican las tácticas de la improvisación terapéutica, el uso del humor y de la negociación de pactos de colaboración con los familiares. Los adolescentes muhcas veces se niegan a participar en el tratamiento, Selekman incluye valiosos modelos alternativos de trabajo convencional en forma de tratamientos de apoyo sólo destiandos a los padres
Hartarse, vomitar, torturarse : la terapia en tiempo breve by Giorgio Nardone( Book )
7 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in Spanish and Italian and held by 16 libraries worldwide
"El verdadero misterio es lo que se ve y no lo invisible" Esta brillante afirmación de Oscar Wilde es perfectamente adecuada para describir el asombro de una persona corriente ante trastronos psíquicos y conducturlaes, tan sorprendentes, extravagantes y contra natura como son hartarse, vomitar y autolesionarse con el objeto de aliviar el sentimiento o buscar un estremecimiento de placer. Según Nardone y Selekman, es posible demostrar que bulimia y autolesión, cada vez más extendidas entre jóvenes y adolescentes, no son categorías diagnósticas distintas, sino dos caras de la misma moneda, y como tales han de ser tratadas. Los autores plantean la posibilidad de una intervención rápida y estratégica, de un modelo terapéutico construído a medida del paciente que permite dar un vuelco a la lógica perversa del trastrono. Según este enfoque tecnológico, son las soluciones más eficaces, elaboradas sobre el terreno, las que definen y describen la patología, en otras palabras, el conocimiento deriva del cambio concreto en la vida del paciente, y node un cuadro teórico o estadísitico que se supone infalible e inmutable. Junto con la exposición de varios casos clínicos, la presente obra ofrece un amplio e imaginativo repertorio de estratagemas terapéuticos que son el fruto de décadas de investigación e intervención
