Solutions Step by Step

A Substance Abuse Treatment Manual

Insoo Kim Berg (Author), Norman H. Reuss (Author)


A practical guide introducing the solution-focused approach to clinicians working with substance abusers.

Stressing solutions rather than pathology, clients' strengths and their strategies for past successes rather than their weaknesses or problems, this team utilizes a solution-building approach by discovering and exploring the ways substance abusers heal themselves. The book covers solution-focused therapy one step at a time. Bursting with case examples, quick tips, and questions "from the field," this is a reader-friendly manual.
