This resource combines step-by-step instructions with vivid case examples to provide a comprehensive and practical overview of the fundamental principles of SFBC. Author Gerald B. Sklare has extensively revised this second edition to include new adaptations of solution-focused methods, more opportunities to practice the SFBC model, and an expanded discussion of ways school administrators can use SFBC. This concise guidebook contains many valuable tools, including:

  • Reproducible materials for use with Solution-Focused Guided Imagery
  • Short case studies and session transcripts to illustrate what SFBC looks like in practice
  • Guidelines for using solution-focused methods with referred discipline cases
  • Practice exercises to help readers apply the techniques
  • Sample forms to use in SFBC

This essential resource for counselors will also be helpful to teachers and school administrators who advise elementary and secondary students, as well as psychologists and social workers who work with youth both in and out of the school setting.
