Reviews - What do customers think about Solution-Oriented Therapy for Chronic and Severe Mental Illness?
Could go into deeper details May 19, 2010
Although their advices and examples are very intriguing, I doubt this book alone will be of much practical use for the everyday psychologist. This book seems like an appetizer and leaves you waiting for the real dish. It looks like the authors wanted to share their (good) ideas, but did not have the time or intent to create a structured and complete method. Would I recommend it? Yes, with a word of caution about the brevity of the material (and the price tag is more compatible with a thicker volume).
Too little information; very small book for the price! Mar 11, 2010
For the price I figured I would get at least 200 pages of great interventions, not so. I got 165 pages (more or less) of stories, and humane philosophies about the chronically mentally ill. The key points found at the end of the chapter would be droll to the seasoned (over one year) therapist. It's an okay reader for the truly green. Authors could have done a much better job. Insight oriented therapy is extremely limited in this population, but was everywhere throughout the book.For someone looking for new and profound interventions and deeper thoughts, save your eighty some bucks for a couple of different therapy planners, or an on-line solution oriented course. Very disappointed in the content and the slim amount of reading. The steep and unfounded price left it with 2 stars.
Great! Oct 9, 2009
This is a great book. It is a very easy read. In fact, i read this book before I purchased it and thought it is a must have for anyone in a therapist type role. I work in an adventure therapy field and found the information as well as the style it was written in very useful. I was also pleased with the condition and the timely arrival of this product. Thank you.
