Systemisch-lösungsorientierte Therapie

People tend to focus mainly on problems. This often gets in their way as they lose sight of resources and goals. A solution focused perspective is more promising and motivating because it fosters hope for possible positive changes. For clients in challenging situations, this can make a crucial difference.

The questioning techniques and interventions of SF assist therapists and clients in searching for and (re)discovering new solutions and their own resources.

In six chapters, this handbook guides therapists in adopting the SF perspective and applying the interventions. The first three chapters provide a short introduction of the most important components of SF. The following three chapters offer a well-stocked toolbox of questions and interventions for therapeutic practice. Worksheets for clients and reflection sheets for therapists for download facilitate the transfer into their own work.

The handbook is really well-structured, concise, and understandable! The reflection sheets with specific questions for everyday work provide a direct link to one’s own occupational therapy practice. What can I do and what am I already doing? What do I want to work on, what might I want to try? It feels a bit like the author and trainer is speaking directly to you. For me, it’s a very good complement to the workshop I attended as part of an occupational therapy training in 2019. This way, I can always refer back to it and apply various methods in my daily practice.

“A great book that makes the implementation of solution-oriented counselling in occupational therapy even more tangible. The additional materials available for download are also great.”

“A super concise workbook, clearly designed, written in understandable language, provides a broad range of experience, makes you eager to incorporate the exercise material directly into therapy! Absolute fortunate find! Highly recommended!”
