This handbook is a practical guide to becoming solution-focused and constructing solutions in brief therapy. At the core of the book is a sequence of skill-building chapters that cover all aspects of constructing solutions; basic assumptions; the positive start; setting well-defined goals; using the hypothetical solution frame and the exceptions frame; and use of the positive. Each chapter explains and demonstrates a particular skill, discusses questions most reently asked at the authors' workshops, and presents exercises and worksheets targeted to the development of skills. The focus throughout is on specific techniques, and numerous examples of interchanges between patient and therapist show how to handle common problems, such as facilitating control, dealing with a patient who defines someone else as the problem, and managing the involuntary patient.
