Solution-Focused Therapy with Children and Adolescents offers mental health professionals an integration of creative and playful approaches and solution-focused therapy. The author presents developmentally appropriate and expressive alternatives to oral communication including sandtray, writing, puppetry, drawing and coloring, photography, and music. The text presents an overview of strength-based and creative approaches with a focused examination of the philosophy and process of solution-focused therapy, then divides chapters into specific stages of therapy-beginnings, searching for treasure, setting goals, and ending the session-with creative techniques offered in each section. The final chapter addresses working with children and adolescents in solution-focused groups, including how to set up groups and progress through different group stages, presenting specific techniques and activities focused on each stage of the group process.

"Becky Taylor ties her knowledge and experience with children, adolescents, and families in multiple settings to the best clinical approaches available: solution-focused brief therapy, resilience research, and play therapy. Chapter 8, 'Digging for Treasure', is a great metaphor for reading this book, a resource for novices and experienced counselors alike. Dig in!"

"Becky Taylor has done a formidable job in taking the reader of this book on a journey through a solution-focused landscape where the abundant tools of play therapy meet with the strength-based approach to help children of all ages overcome their problems and difficulties."

"Solution-Focused Therapy with Children and Adolescents lives up to its title. This text, a useful contribution to the literature, provides clinicians with playful interventions to build on solutions and honor a child's own expertise in their life. Child therapists who wish to add play-based, solution-focused ideas to their toolbox should put this text on their wish list."

Pamela K. King, international speaker and trainer, author of Tools for Effective Therapy with Children and Families: A Solution Focused Approach
