  • solution focused Brief Therapy for individuals with alcohol use disorders in chile
    Research on Social Work Practice, 2019
    Co-Authors: Karla Gonzalez Suitt, Pablo Geraldo, Marlene Estay, Cynthia Franklin

    Abstract:

    Purpose:This article presents a pilot study exploring the applicability of a linguistically adapted, solution-focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) program, implemented by social workers in Chilean primary care.Method:We completed a single-case design with eight replications. To analyze the results of the program on participants’ alcohol use and other related variables, we conducted visual and percentage of nonoverlapping data analyses.Results:Social workers successfully implemented 10 of the 13 SFBT techniques. Although results need to be interpreted with caution, positive trends were observed. Participants increased their “percentage of days abstinent,” diminished “consequences of alcohol use,” decreased their “depression index,” and increased their “self-reported well-being.”Discussion:Results are consistent with previous studies on SFBT and alcohol use. Exception and coping questions may serve to increase abstinent days. SFBT focus on issues other than alcohol that are important to clients could help to reduce…

  • Solution-Focused Brief Therapy in Schools
    Oxford Scholarship Online, 2017
    Co-Authors: Michael Kelly, Cynthia Franklin

    Abstract:

    Teachers, administrators, and students face many challenges in schools, yet schools are also places of solutions, strengths, and successes. The second edition of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy in Schools offers a practical guide that shows school social workers how to harness the solutions that are already happening in their schools by applying the principles of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). With its emphasis on strengths and short-term treatment, SFBT is a potentially powerful tool for school professionals to add to their repertoires. A solution-focused school social worker can help students, particularly those who are harder to engage, think about ways to focus on what’s working and how they can change their lives in positive ways. This second edition is part of the School Social Work Association of America Oxford Workshop Series and has been updated with new research and clinical practice information. New to this edition is a more thorough example of how to use SFBT within the Response-to-Intervention (RtI) framework with case examples demonstrating innovate ways. It also includes five new clinical chapters called “SFBT in Action.” These new chapters cover five of the most common student problems school social workers encounter in their jobs. Each of these new chapters provides an overview of the particular problem both nationally and in school settings and describe risk and protective factors. Along with a discussion on why SFBT is a useful approach for that particular problem, case examples are also provided illustrating how to use many of the specific solution-focused techniques for them.

  • Changing the subject: Self-construction in Brief Therapy.
    Institutional selves: Troubled identities in a postmodern world., 2001
    Co-Authors: Gale Miller

    Abstract:

    Discusses how the practice of ‘Brief Therapy‘ at a US clinical facility changed from an ecosystemic to a solution-focused approach and led to an altered way of conceptualizing selves in clients. Where clients once were envisioned as parts of systemic problems, they came to be seen as active agents involved in, and capable of, providing their own solutions.

  • Becoming Miracle Workers: Language and Meaning in Brief Therapy
    , 1997
    Co-Authors: Gale Miller

    Abstract:

    Brief Therapy is a postmodern treatment mode that treats problems as social constructions, encouraging those seeking treatment to replace personal troubles (negative stories) with new problem-solving skills (positive stories). The significant differences discussed in this book do not involve sociologists and Brief therapists. The differences are between Brief therapists, on the one hand, and practitioners of psychoTherapy and family Therapy on the other. One indicator of these is Brief therapists’ describing the people who seek their services as clients. The terminology may be contrasted with the language of patients used by many other therapists. At the very least, this difference suggests how Brief Therapy departs from Therapy approaches that are based on the medical model. Becoming Miracle Workers takes the reader inside “Northland Clinic,” one of the most innovative and important centers of Brief Therapy in the world. Based on twelve years of research, Miller’s book discusses how Brief Therapy has evolved into its present, postmodern form. He describes the details of Brief therapist-client interactions, and the behind-the-scenes discussions among Brief therapists about their clients’ problems. This readable account of the workings of Brief Therapy invites readers to sit in on Brief Therapy sessions, provides them with new understandings of personal troubles as social constructions, and shows how Brief therapists help their clients develop new, untroubled, life stories.
