Solution-Focused Cognitive and Systemic Therapy: The Bruges Model is the first book in English to lay out the Bruges Model, a meta-model that incorporates solution-focused therapy in an analysis of the therapeutic alliance and common factors that account for the majority of the efficacy of any therapeutic endeavor. This book is divided into three parts, covering each of the common factors: client factors, therapist and relationship factors, and placebo factors. Each part summarizes the state of our theoretical knowledge, then dives into specific clinical and educational applications in specific populations and contexts.

The topic of trauma has been covered in many books, and there are many publications covering the use of SFBT in different settings and with varied client populations. However, the convergence of these topics has, to date, been covered only minutely. Solution-Focused Brief Therapy with Clients Managing Trauma is a comprehensive overview of how Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) can be used as a treatment approach for working with clients managing various forms of trauma. It includes an overview of SFBT's basic tenets, a description of the current research supporting SFBT as an evidence-based practice, and a comparison of how SFBT clinicians may approach trauma cases differently than clinicians from other therapeutic approaches. The bulk of the text uniquely includes chapters contributed by skilled SFBT clinicians, with differing clinical expertise, sharing their knowledge and describing their strength-based, resiliency focus of applying SFBT in different traumatic circumstances. Practitioners and even Master's/doctoral students will find this text invaluable in learning how to best help traumatized clients develop a positive future and move toward healing and health.

Is our society color-blind? Trans-racial? Post-racial? And what—if anything—should this mean to professionals in clinical practice with diverse clients? The ambitious volume The Concept of Race and Psychotherapy probes these questions, compelling readers to look differently at their clients (and themselves), and offering a practical framework for more effective therapy. By tracing the racial “folk taxonomies” of eight cultures in the Americas and the Caribbean, the author elegantly defines race as a fluid construct, dependent on local social, political, and historical context for meaning but meaningless in the face of science. This innovative perspective informs the rest of the book, which addresses commonly held assumptions about problem behavior and the desire to change, and presents a social-science-based therapy model, applicable to a wide range of current approaches, that emphasizes both cultural patterns and client uniqueness. Among the highlights of the coverage: Common elements in therapy and healing across cultures. The psychological appeal of racial concepts despite scientific evidence to the contrary. Lessons psychology can learn from anthropology. Three types of therapeutic relationships, with strategies for working effectively in each. The phenomenon of discontinuous change in brief therapy. Solution-focused therapy from a cross-cultural perspective. Thought-provoking reading for psychologists, psychiatrists, clinical social workers, and other mental health professionals as well as graduate students in these fields, The Concept of Race and Psychotherapy affirms the individuality—and the interconnectedness—of every client.

Aimed at all health professionals regardless of their clinical setting, Brief Therapy addresses the patient’s needs, physical, mental and emotional. Usually, nurses and doctors deal with the practical aspects of healthcare, such as prescribing medication and carrying out tests. Meanwhile, mental health professionals consider separately whether patients need a counsellor or psychiatrist. This book offers a new holistic approach, which transcends such organisational and professional divisions for the good of the patient. Most importantly, Brief Therapy is a method of intervening early, in order to prevent long- term problems setting in. The stigma and pain of mental illness can be significantly reduced by explaining and treating patients’ symptoms in the context of their lives. Essentially, this book is for any health professional who feels that psychological care is important and who wants to build on skills that will improve their effectiveness with patients.
