The latest developments in this groundbreaking therapy approach!

More Than Miracles: The State of the Art of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy is a ground breaking, intellectually provocative book, revealing new advances in the widely used, evidence based Solution-focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) approach. The final work of world renowned family therapists and original developers of SFBT, the late Steve de Shazer and Insoo Kim Berg (who passed away shortly before the book’s release) this definitive resource provides the most up-to-date information available on this eminently practical, internationally acclaimed approach. New revelations about the impact of language in therapeutic change are presented precisely and clearly, illustrated with real life case examples that give readers a “hands-on” view of the newest technical refinements in the SF approach. Challenging questions about the applications of SFBT to complex problems in “difficult” settings are given thoughtful, detailed answers. The book’s unique design allows the reader to “listen in” on the lively discussions that took place as the authors watched therapy sessions.

The solution-focused brief therapy approach is based upon researchers observing thousands of hours of psychotherapy sessions and studying which questions and responses were most effective in helping people develop solutions to their problems. More Than Miracles: The State of the Art of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy is the most up-to-date, comprehensive review of this approach. This book discusses the latest developments in the fields of family therapy, brief therapy, and psychotherapy training and practice. A succinct overview orients the reader to the current state of SFBT, and provides three real life case transcripts that vividly illustrate the practical applications of SFBT techniques.

The seminar format of More Than Miracles: The State of the Art of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy allows readers to:
  • sit in on surprising psychotherapy sessions
  • eavesdrop on the authors’ commentary about the sessions
  • get a comprehensive overview on the current state of SFBT
  • review and understand the major tenets of SFBT
  • learn specific interventions, including the miracle question and the reasons for asking it
  • understand treatment applicability
  • read actual session transcripts
  • understand the “miracle scale”
  • get insight into the unique relationship between Wittgenstein’s philosophy and SFBT
  • better understand SFBT and emotions
  • examine misconceptions about SFBT
  • and more

More Than Miracles: The State of the Art of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy is illuminating reading for psychotherapists, counselors, human services personnel, health care workers, and teachers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource for SFBT March 13, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
More than Miracles provides the state of the art for this model. This work represents the best distillation of the model to date. I especially appreciate the chapter covering its philosophical basis in Wittgenstein. I also appreciate the use of multiple cases to demonstrate the nuances of this model. Whether you like or approve of postmodern types of therapy, More than Miracles introduces you to the best of this type of therapy. It is a must have to complete any therapy or therapist's library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Overview of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy March 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the last book Steve de Shazer and Insoo Kim Berg created about SFBT. It includes their thoughts, as well as those of the Founders Group about how SFBT works, strategies for tackling different problems, and answers to common objections about the approach. Very worthwhile.

An excellent primer on how to do SFBT. Yes, I am largely postmodern, but any therapist would benefit from reading this brilliant work. Optional reading for a course during my psychology MA, and one of the highlights. Kindle ed was very cost-effective!

I am a great fan of Steve shazer s solution focused brief therapy. It's been tested and for those skilled in its use there are results for them to see and their patients to benefit from. How refreshing for therapists not to be archeologists of problem saturation.
