The Solution Focused approach can be used in a wide variety of fields and settings, ranging from therapy to management, and working with individuals or with groups. Solution Focused Groupwork, whether as therapy, training, support, coaching, or facilitation, and in classes, meetings and other settings, offers huge potential and can be a very cost-effective, practical and enjoyable way of working with several people at the same time, whether a few or several dozen. It also requires a somewhat different application of Solution Focused skills to those used in individual work.
This book sets out clearly our thinking about the Solution Focused approach, exploring in particular its application to the world of coaching. Naturally, since the solution focused model of change is a generic one this book will also be of interest to cousellors, therapists and others interested in putting solution focus to work.
Carole Pemberton, Executive coach and author, writes about the book: “This book offers the expertise of leading solution focused therapists for an audience that is interested in how to take a solution focused approach to their coaching work. When resources are tight, a BRIEF approach offers a well-researched way of making the most of coaching interventions.”
