Solution Focused Brief Therapy: A Multicultural Approach is a timely text that outlines the basics of solution focused therapy then applies the approach to a range of multicultural populations. The book is intended for students in training to learn the SFBT method from a multiculturally competent approach. It first presents an introduction to the development of SFBT and then goes into the techniques and skills. The third chapter presents the evidence for using SFBT and then discusses the effectiveness of the approach. The next part of the book is the application across various client populations, including African American, Hispanic and Latino, Native Americans, LGBT, immigrants, clients with disabilties, socioeconomically disadvantaged clients, and spritual/religious. A final chapter synthesizes the book and reviews directions on using the approach. The book will contain cases in every chapter, teaching tools such as exercises and worksheets, and key implications for practice.
