101 Solution-Focused Questions for Help with Trauma by Fredrike Bannink

This book aims to help therapists working with clients who struggle with trauma by offering them solution-focused (SF) viewpoints and skills. The book invites all professionals to change their focus from what is wrong to what is right with their clients, and from what isn’t working to what is working in their lives.

The book contains 101 solution-focused questions (and more) for help with trauma, with a focus on the clients’ preferred future and the pathways to get there.

As Insoo Kim Berg put it in her foreword for Fredrike Bannink’s highly successful 1001 Solution-Focused Questions: Handbook for Solution-Focused Interviewing, “SFBT is based on the respectful assumption that clients have the inner resources to construct highly individualized and uniquely effective solutions to their problems.”

From the more than 2,000 questions she has collected over the years, Bannink has selected the 101 most relevant for each subject. Much of the material in the 3-volume set is unique and did not appear in the earlier work, inviting therapists to open themselves to a new light on interviewing clients.
