Too often in practice, there is a tendency to pathologize clients, requiring a diagnosis as part of the helping relationship. Suppose, however, that most of the client problems that social workers encounter have more to do with the vagaries of life and not with what clients are doing wrong. This powerful idea is the philosophy behind the strengths-based approaches to social work. This groundbreaking practice handbook takes this concept one step further, combining the different strengths-based approaches into an overarching model of solution-oriented social work for greater impact. The strengths perspective emphasizes client strengths, goal-setting, and a shared definition of positive outcome. Solution-focused therapy approaches ongoing problems when they have temporarily abated, amplifying exceptions as solutions. This natural but rarely explored pairing is one component in the challenging and effective practice framework presented here by the authors, two seasoned practitioners with over 50 years of combined experience. By integrating the most useful aspects of the major approaches, a step-by-step plan for action emerges. With this text in hand, you will: - Integrate elements from the strengths perspective, solution-focused therapy, narrative therapy, and the strategic therapy of the Mental Research Institute (the MRI approach) into an effective and eclectic framework - Build and practice your skills using case examples, transcripts, and practical advice - Equip yourself with the tools you need to emphasize clients' strengths - Challenge the diagnosis-first medical model of behavioral health care - Collaborate with clients to get past thinking (first-order change), and more to acting "outside the box" (second-order change) - Learn to work with a wide variety of clients, including individuals, groups, and families; involuntary clients; clients with severe mental illness; and clients in crisis For any student or practitioner interested in working with clients towards collaborative and empowering change, this is the essential text.

The Field Guide toCounseling Toward Solutions When it was first published in 1995, Linda Metcalf's book Counseling Toward Solutions became an instant bestseller. The book offered a new and positive program for changing individual behavior that helped K-12 students with their own problems and gave them self-esteem in the process. Now, The Field Guide to Counseling Toward Solutions offers school counselors, teachers, and administrators a complete program for changing the way that schools deal with a variety of issues.?From an alternative school program that enlists the power of teacher mentors to the elementary program that involves the teacher, parent, and student in the counseling process, this book shows how to make change happen and how to make it last. The solution-focused approach helps everyone involved to begin their own change process by noticing when a problem does not occur, rather than focusing on the problem or what caused it. It includes information targeted to specific age groups--elementary school students, middle schoolers, and adolescents--because each developmental stage requires a certain perspective and focus in order to collaborate and reach solutions. The Field Guide to Counseling Toward Solutions offers guidelines for developing a school-wide program that encompasses virtually all of the day-to-day programming that schools must provide for students. The book includes techniques and suggestions for: Training staff to become more solution-focused and student-centered Working together with teams, teachers, and parents so that the "system" creates and maintains change Creating support groups for parents and students Reducing special education referrals through solution-focused conversations In this book, bestselling author and veteran school counselor Linda Metcalf offers more than a simple positive strategy or technique--she provides a way to think about school "clients" that can change interactions and guarantee success.
