How to use limited therapeutic time most efficiently

Research shows that many clients seeking therapeutic help attend for one session only--no matter what their therapist's orientation or approach. Moshe Talmon demonstrates how therapists can turn this single encounter into a positive therapeutic experience.

Based on a study of hundreds of single-session cases, this book offers a realistic, practical approach to using a single session to prompt substantial changes in patients' lives. The author describes how to make the most of patients' innate ability to heal themselves--presenting insights into bolstering the patient's existing strengths, restoring autonomy and confidence, and offering solutions that the patient can implement immediately.
