‘Embraces the much deeper philosophical aspects of solution focused work that are relevant for every human group. … Sharry writes extremely well and skillfully interweaves theory and practice.’

David Jaques, Author of Learning in Groups

‘Enlightening, clearly written, and helpfully presented … The book echoes
what Solution-Focused Groupwork is all about – being practical and
optimistic about human potential.’

Chris Iveson, Brief Therapy Practice London

‘John Sharry has fluency with language that allows complexity to sit side by side with clarity and ideas to flow across the page. This is a book that must be read by
anyone interested in front line developments in solution-focused therapy.’

Scott D. Miller, Co-founder, Institute for the Study of Therapeutic Change, Chicago, USA

‘Solution-Focused Groupwork picks up where Irvin Yalom’s classic ‘Theory and
Practice of Group Psychotherapy’ left off. In a thoughtful, step-by-step, and easy-to- read fashion, John Sharry integrates the best from established principles of group therapy with recent advances in brief, strength-based, resiliency-oriented treatment approaches. A must read for practitioners working with groups.’

V. Draper
