Completely re-mastered four-DVD, three-hour set offers a series of demonstrations based on the use of solution-oriented counseling where the focus is on future outcomes. Each session begins with an introduction and background information by the author and has been taped live. These therapeutic demonstrations cover:
· Resolving Depression. Feeling ‘invisible,’ the client is helped to develop ways to generate becoming ‘visible.’ Past, recent, and imagined future experiences are explored and clarified.
· Resolving a Fear of Heights. A man’s intense concern for the safety of his children provides the motivation for resolving his fear of heights.
· Overcoming Anxiety. A woman’s anxieties about separation from her family are explored as body-felt experiences, as are the preferred emotions of relief and safety. Her worries are validated, normalized, and reframed.
· Resolving Trauma. A man’s trauma about his son’s surgery is reframed and reconnected with skills that he has used to deal with past traumas.
