The Therapist's Treasure Chest
By

Rating
A trove of ready-to-use, solution-focused therapy techniques for work with children, adults, and families on commonly encountered problems, The Therapist's Treasure Chest is an easy-to-navigate pocket resource for finding a proven and age-appropriate therapeutic solution for the particular condition, symptom, or challenge a mental health professional is faced with on a given day of practice. Seasoned practitioners Andrea and Filip Caby introduce the foundational principles of solution-focused therapy, followed by an overview of therapeutic questioning techniques, both basic and advanced, and key advice on how to productively lead a therapeutic conversation. The third part of the Treasure Chest presents specific indications and interventions-hundreds of tried and tested approaches that have proven effective for symptoms and disorders from severe trauma to thumb-sucking, depression and anxiety to eating disorders. Each intervention includes an explanation of the theoretical background from which it has emerged, a practical guide to applying it with clients, and a section of helpful notes, advice, suggested settings, case examples, and contraindications.
