Chris Iveson, Brief Therapy Practice London

John Sharry’s book is a jewel in the solution focused literature. It is clearly and engagingly written, draws on a host of ideas from different therapeutic approaches and is packed with practical examples. There is no better book on strengths-based therapy with children and adolescents. Every team should have one.’

Scott Miller, ISTC Chicago, USA

‘In a clear, engaging, and step-by-step fashion, John Sharry describes how therapists, social workers, and helpers of all stripes, can tap into the many assets and abilities lying in wait in today’s youth. I highly recommend it.’

Bill O’Hanlon, Founder of Possibility Therapy

‘Will help both beginners and advanced students of solution-based therapies
master the approach. The perceptive reader will discover many advanced
concepts presented clearly and simply.’

Ben Furman, Director, Reteaming International

‘It’s not easy to write a good hands-on book about solution focused brief therapy which is exactly what the authors have managed to do. You will enjoy reading this book very much. It gives you enough ideas about the approach that you can start testing them in your work with clients right away.’

Light of touch, inviting to the (surely busy and distracted) readers, and decorated with amusing cartoons that add ideas … A good gift for young parents facing the challenge of those vital years’
