This book discusses an innovative approach to nursing practice. Solution-focused nursing is a practical philosophy which emphasizes change at three levels: the client, nursing and society. It teaches three important principles: to be cautious of dominant paradigms, to focus not only on problems but solutions too, and to work with and for clients rather than on them. "Solution-Focused Nursing" challenges common assumptions about care and provides a framework for nursing that is not just technical, but psychosocial too.
