Service providers will find the clinical problem solving case management approach practical and user-friendly. The Listen-Identify-Brainstorm-Reality-test-Encourage (LIBRE) Model provides a mutually rewarding experience for the client and the clinician. The LIBRE model has shown to be effective for working with a variety of clientele, including teacher candidates and teachers. This text takes problem solving to counseling and consultative assessment, intervention and monitoring horizons to make greater client impact – this is a must read!

Dr. Norma Guerra, in her private and professional life, has always been about care, compassion, sharing, and helping. This book reflects that as well as provides a needed perspective from a cultural background whose voice is needed now more than ever. I foresee Clinical Problem Solving becoming a voice from and for that cultural perspective, as well as for the wider audience for which it was created.
