This step-by-step guidebook offers a range of contemporary and popular brief treatments, suitable for a range of client groups and professional settings. Following a comprehensive introduction to the use of brief interventions in therapeutic practice, each chapter provides an introduction to the theoretical underpinnings and evidence-based brief intervention, followed by guidance on how to implement the approaches with useful 'top tips', worksheets and examples from practice through case vignettes illustrating its application. Includes chapters on motivational interviewing, brief interventions for suicide risk, brief and single-session exposure-based therapies for phobias and PTSD, solution-focused brief therapy, brief interventions for violence, brief interventions for psychosis and a selection of special interest feature chapters (e.g. supporting people through bereavement and nurturing wellbeing in hospital settings). The Handbook is an essential guide to a range of practitioners working across a multitude of fields within health, social care and education. The Handbook reflects current recommendations and guidelines of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence and recommendations of accrediting professional bodies in the UK and US. A must have for any practitioner working to support the wellbeing of others.
