W.W. Norton recently published my book titled
1001 Solution-Focused Questions. Handbook for Solution-Focused Interviewing
in the USA and UK. Insoo Kim Berg wrote the foreword (also for the Dutch version published in 2006), just a few months before she passed away:
"With this clear and well written book Fredrike Bannink makes the solution-building approach accessible to many readers. It is a handbook that is meant for both students and advanced practitioners who are interested in sharpening their solution-focused skills. The format of the book has something of a workshop-like quality. Exercises are offered throughout the book to give the reader the opportunity to integrate the solution-building approach through action based learning. A wide variety of solution-focused techniques are introduced that allow the practitioner to reach out to clients to mobilize their resources. The 1001 solution-focused questions presented in this book will give the reader a very good idea of the importance of the precise use of language as a tool in solution-focused interviewing. Questions are included with which to negotiate the goal in the beginning of the therapy, questionsfor measuring progress, and questions for finding out what succesful steps clients have taken to achieve their goals. Readers of 1001 Solution Focused Questions: Handbook for Solution-Focused Interviewing are invited to open themselves to a 'new light' on interviewing clients".
