This is the first book to explain the many synergies between solution focused brief therapy (SFBT) and harm reduction (HR). Seán Foy discusses how these two approaches are complementary and when used in conjunction, create a novel way of approaching addiction work. The book covers several detailed case studies examining how the concepts and theories of both approaches are intertwined to enhance and deepen the work undertaken with people who misuse and abuse substances. It will be of great interest to scholars of psychotherapy, social work, social care, addiction, nursing and health care, as well as to practitioners seeking a clearer understanding of solution focused brief therapy and harm reduction and how to apply these to case work with problematic drinkers and drug users.

This groundbreaking book, now updated and expanded, furthers its original, effective, time-saving approach that benefits pastors overtaxed by counseling demands. Dr. Charles Kollar presents a departure in pastoral counseling, showing that counseling need not be long-term or depend on psychological manipulation to produce dramatic results. In most cases, the solution lies with the counselees themselves. Using the tested methods found in Solution-Focused Pastoral Counseling, pastors, apart from counselors, will be well equipped to help their counselees discover a solution and put it in motion speedily and productively. SFPC is short-term—typically one to five sessions, in which the counselor seeks to create solutions with—not for—the counselee. The focus is on the possibility of life without the problem through an understanding of what is different when the problem does not occur or is less intrusive. The goal is healthy change, sooner rather than later, by helping the counselee see and work on the solution with God’s activity already present in his or her life. The solution-focused approach does not require the counselor to be a highly trained psychological expert. It requires biblically based sensitivity and common sense. Yet this approach also recognizes its limitations and understands that there are situations in which other professional and/or medical help is required.
