Solution-Focused Therapy with Children and Adolescents offers mental health professionals an integration of creative and playful
approaches and solution-focused therapy. The author presents developmentally appropriate and expressive alternatives to oral
communication including sandtray, writing, puppetry, drawing and coloring, photography, and music. The text presents an overview
of strength-based and creative approaches with a focused examination of the philosophy and process of solution-focused therapy,
then divides chapters into specific stages of therapy-beginnings, searching for treasure, setting goals, and ending the session-with
creative techniques offered in each section. The final chapter addresses working with children and adolescents in solution-focused
groups, including how to set up groups and progress through different group stages, presenting specific techniques and activities
focused on each stage of the group process.
