Press Reviews

  • Dr. Alasdair J. Macdonald, retired consultant psychiatrist and family therapist; chair of a Dorset counselling charity

    I would recommend this book to anyone developing skills for solution-focused work in any aspect of client work.
  • Andrew Callcott MA (SFBT); Psychological Therapist. Former Chair of UK Association for Solution Focused Practice

    With this welcome new addition to the growing body of solution focused literature, Judith Milner and Steve Myers offer a very practical guide to solution focused practice with a range of client groups - whether this is with young children or elderly people living with dementia, and everyone in-between. The ideas are clearly articulated and illustrated with dialogue. Traditional methods from the founders of solution focused brief therapy are integrated with modern developments. Practical exercises reinforce the learning and help to locate the skills within the reader's own practice. I can recommend this book to those who are new to this elegant and effective way of helping people as well as 'old hands' such as myself who always can benefit from being brought back to basics.
  • Guy Shennan, independent consultant in solution focused practice and Chair of the British Association of Social Workers

    Yet another supremely practical guide to solution focused practice from the creative Judith Milner and Steve Myers, which has plenty to offer to both the experienced and newcomers to the field. Plainly written and full of useful activities, it will be a welcome addition to any solution focused practitioner's bookshelf.

This is an excellent, easy-to-read resource written in an engaging style, which will inform and inspire all of us who are seeking to help and support people make better choices and lead rewarding lives.
