Single Session Therapy: Maximizing the Effect of the First (and Often Only) Therapeutic Encounter
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.
