This is the first book to explain the many synergies between solution focused brief therapy (SFBT) and harm reduction (HR). Seán Foy discusses how these two approaches are complementary and when used in conjunction, create a novel way of approaching addiction work. The book covers several detailed case studies examining how the concepts and theories of both approaches are intertwined to enhance and deepen the work undertaken with people who misuse and abuse substances. It will be of great interest to scholars of psychotherapy, social work, social care, addiction, nursing and health care, as well as to practitioners seeking a clearer understanding of solution focused brief therapy and harm reduction and how to apply these to case work with problematic drinkers and drug users.

“A book written by a clinical expert with credible frontline harm reduction experience... I first met Sean Foy in the mid 1990’s in a day centre for people who were street homeless in London.  We were both front line workers targeting people who were hard to reach. I liked this pragmatic and thoughtful Mayo man straight away.  This book is the culmination of years of Sean’s work with people who have complex and multiple needs; and as such it is an important addition to the literature.” (Tony Duffin, CEO of the Ana Liffey Drug Project, Ireland)
