About the Author

"With a solid theoretical grounding, this comprehensive text weds solution-focused therapy to social work, a marriage built on compatibility of values and principles." --Jacqueline Corcoran, PhD, Professor of Social Work, Virginia Commonwealth University

"Greene and Lee have created a masterpiece. Few texts provide such a detailed look into the change processes of solution-focused practice that this book provides. It is filled with case examples and detailed micro steps that practitioners can use to help people change. The authors review all the major developments in strengths-based practice, grounding solution-oriented practice in both theory and practice methods. This is an excellent text for teaching students a solution-building process that moves beyond the traditional problem-solving methods, and towards the discovery of a different way to approach and solve problems." --Cynthia Franklin, PhD, Stiernberg/Spencer Family Professor in Mental Health, University of Texas at Austin

"Social work has long espoused a strengths-based perspective, but practice has lagged far behind-knowing doesn't translate easily to doing. This text fills that gap by showing clearly, in step-by-step fashion, not only how to think about your work but, more importantly, what you can do to become solution-oriented in your practice. Greene and Lee's approach is grounded solidly in the latest theoretical and empirical literature." --Wallace J. Gingerich, PhD, Professor Emeritus of Social Work, Case Western Reserve University

"Gil Greene and Mo Yee Lee have crafted a text that will carry on the importance of solution-focused brief therapy for the next generation. The authors have managed to integrate all the assumptions and evidence of SFBT into a practice context that is easy to follow and use. At the same time, readers will marvel at the rigor, precision, and detail that has been devoted to painstakingly pulling the best SFBT has to offer into theory, working with clients, and special applications. This book is very practical and a must-have for practitioners and instructors. I highly recommend it." --Peter Lehmann, PhD, Associate Professor of Social Work, University of Texas at Arlington

"Greene and Lee have successfully filled the gap in the clinical social work literature by producing the first practice-friendly and well written solution-oriented text in the field. The authors have transcended earlier books on the solution-focused brief therapy model by integrating ideas from compatible therapeutic approaches and important findings from psychotherapy outcome research to create an expanded and advanced version of the model to make it much more effective with a wide range of client difficulties. This book is a gem and both novice and seasoned social workers will find a rich treasure trove of therapeutic tools and strategies awaiting them." --Matthew D. Selekman, MSW, Co-Director, Partners for Collaborative Solutions
