Reviews

Terry Hargrave"Author of "Families and Forgiveness"No one has applied solution focused therapy to more diverse settings in such an effective way as Linda Metcalf. This book opens a whole new door to group therapy.
Michael Durrant"Author of "Creative Strategies for School Problems: Solutions for Psychologists and Teachers"Linda Metcalf's book is the logical next step in the solution focused brief therapy literature and, as such, is timely and most welcome....She shows how a therapeutic approach that sets out to be collaboration between clients and therapist is ideally suited to situations where clients in a group can develop therapeutic collaboration as well.
Bill O'Hanlon"Author of "Even from a Broken Web" and "Brief Couples Therapy Homework Planner"Finally, a book on solution-based and collaborative group therapy. The field has been waiting for this book for a long time, and Linda Metcalf has done it well. She includes solid theoretical underpinnings, as well as practical methods of doing group work in a variety of academic and clinical settings. She tells us how to do group therapy with anxiety, depression, anger, adolescents, parents, relationships, and family-of-origin issues. But more than all this, the book is pervaded by a spirit of hope, respect, creativity and humor.

Brian Cade "Author of "A Brief Guide to Family Therapy" At last! A reliable and comprehensive work to which I can refer the increasing number of professionals, from a wide variety of practice settings, who are asking me, "Can these techniques be adapted for groups?" It is clear, concise, practical and full of adaptable examples. I...recommend it.
