MEDIA REVIEWS

In the second edition of The Therapist's Notebook for Families, Bob Bertolino has done a masterful job of using key psychotherapy change principles/mechanisms, based in research, to create practical and meaningful exercises that will help therapists, clients, and their family members engage in and move through the often difficult change process. These theoretically informed exercises are a must-have resource for both novice and seasoned therapists.-Adrian Blow, PhD, Associate Professor and Program Director, Couple and Family Therapy Program, Department of Human Development and Family Studies, Michigan State University

The Therapist's Notebook for Families provides a unique combination of exercises to build effective skills and processes to develop a professional disposition anchored in collaboration and strength-based philosophy. Dr. Bertolino is a leader in the field of solution-based therapies and provides innovative exercises that are applicable for students, supervisors, and new and experienced professionals. -Michael Kiener, PhD, CRC, Associate Professor of Rehabilitation Counseling, Maryville University of St. Louis

If you are a solution-focused, solution-oriented, or solution-based family therapist, then The Therapis'st Notebook for Families is just the ticket for an effective, rewarding practice. Through this compendium of change-oriented exercises, Bob Bertolino demonstrates the many ways one can balance maintaining respect for families while challenging them to do different things and do things differently-all in ways that make impeccable sense and happen to be fun and engaging at the same time. Too many professional helpers can tell you what is wrong with a family and why. Very few can help family members effectively and efficiently create antidotes for the difficulties that ail them. This book is an invitation to step away from the dark side of problem-saturated practice into the light of solution-talk and family transformation that makes a difference. -Jay Memmott, MSW, PhD, Chair and MSW Program Director, University of South Dakota
