I bought this book to learn more about SFBT for a paper. Once I got into the book, I really enjoyed it. Guterman is a transformed REBT therapist and uses solution-focused therapy now. He gives detailed examples of how SFBT can be used to treat a plethora of mental illnesses and a case study of a particularly tough client of his. A great read for any therapist or future therapist.

A well crafted tome. Guterman's book Mastering the Art of Solution-Focused Counseling is an important resource for helping counselors learn the theory and practice of this innovative approach. The book includes both complex theoretical underpinnings and practical clinical guidelines. I strongly recommend this book for clinicians interested in working from a solution-focused perspective. The only quibble I have about this book is that I was left wanting a bit more. But this seems appropriate given the minimalist approach set forth in solution-focused counseling and the "less is better" philosophy that Guterman advocates.

The book was required for the Fall Semester 2011. The professor posted the text requirements rather late. Fortunately I was able to order and receive the text in a prompt fashion, just in time for class. The book arrived in the condition described.

Excellent overview of solution-focused therapy. Very helpful to me as a practioner of brief therapy. I would reommend it for new therapists or those of us who have worked in the field for some time.

An excellent read for beginning therapists. Solution Focused therapy is one of my favorite models to work from. Dr Guterman is insightful, poignant and engaging.

Used in a Masters level Cybernetics of Cybernetics system thinking class. Of all the textbooks out there for such complex theories this is an easy read. I high reccomend!
