Too often doctors, therapists, and social workers ask “what’s wrong in your life?” rather than “what do you want?” Ronald E. Warner’s Solution-Focused Interviewing is a practical guide to talking to clients using a solution-driven and strength-based approach that empowers clients and helps them to find lasting solutions to their problems.

In Solution-Focused Interviewing, asking questions about clients’ goals and resources ­– the strengths that will let them change their lives – is the basis of a three-phase therapeutic process that builds empathy before helping clients to set realistic goals and build a plan to achieve them.

Based on more than two decades of solution-focused therapy workshops and Warner’s extensive clinical experience, Solution-Focused Interviewing is the first skill development manual based on this innovative tri-phase approach to interviewing.

Reviews and Endorsements:

“Ronald Warner clearly has extensive and solid experience in administering solution-focused interventions. He puts together complex concepts in remarkable ways. Easily readable.”

“A great handbook offering at workshops and conferences. Mental health, addictions, and school professionals also will find this book useful in their respective practice settings.”
Matthew Sekelman, Director, Partners for Collaborative Solutions, Evanston, Illinois, USA

“Solution-Focused Interviewing integrates important developments in process research with the learning of solution-focused interviewing skills and counseling techniques. Very well written and readable, the book is excellent for teaching solution-focused therapy and interviewing.”
Cynthia Franklin, School of Social Work, University of Texas at Austin
