about

"Walsh's book is not only thorough, thoughtful, and clearly written, it is also timely because as SF practice applications with their parallel knowledge bases continue to multiply, the questions Walsh addresses so competently are cutting edge for adopting a SF approach to practice in human services."
Peter De Jong, Solution-focused Therapist, Trainer, and Consultant and Emeritus Professor of Social Work, Calvin College, USA

Based in part on original research with over 50 practitioners, this absorbing book provides a practice model for solution-focused helping, developed from real-life experiences across a number of settings.

The book begins by reviewing the original De Shazer and Berg practice model, establishing a case for change and then introduces a new concept for the solution-focused helper. Case examples are used to demonstrate the application of this new model in five different practice settings:

  • Healthcare
  • Learning disability
  • Services for older people and end-of-life care
  • Community development
  • Services for globalised diverse communitiesReflective exercises and research reviews are included for each setting as well as sections on policy contexts and ethical dimensions.

    The Solution-Focused Helper will support students and practitioners who are already familiar with the basic concepts and principles of solution-focused work and who wish to develop their practice and deepen their knowledge.

Trish Walsh is a researcher and educator in the School of Social Work and Social Policy, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. She is also an independent social worker and trainer/consultant. Her doctoral research was on the introduction of solution-focused therapy to Irish practitioners, and she has published widely on its use.
