“Single-Session Therapy. An introduction to principles and practise“

How to make the most of every single session

We explore some aspects together


Read all the testimonials from people who have trained with us in the SST Workshop section.


The very next day I began putting into practise some of the key points of SST in the course of ongoing ‚Äúconventional‚ÄĚ sessions, and I have to say that I noticed an im-provement in my subjective experience in terms of: - focus on the patient‚Äôs goal within the specific session; - more accurate restating of resources and engagement in therapy (which, I noticed, increases the feeling of partnership in the process); - and, most of all, improved results in terms of effectiveness, of systematic feedback during the session!! All this leads me to say I‚Äôm delighted to have acquired this new methodology and I‚Äôm very happy to continue sharing new developments in SST and my personal experiences!

The latest news about Single-Session Therapy

Single-session therapy and psychotherapy

‚Äú¬†Everything will be fine in the end.¬†And if it doesn’t go well, it means it’s not the end!”

We want to start this article , letting ourselves be guided by these words attributed to John Lennon , which encourage us to look to the future with the hope of a final yet to be built!


With¬†today’s article¬†, in fact, we will address the issue¬†of recognizing SST¬†as¬†a form of psychotherapy , a point on which¬†clarity¬†has been made over time¬†, but which at the same time is once again being debated.

An example of how some issues can come back to the fore is well described in a 2019 article published in the Journal of Systemic Therapies entitled Recognizing Single-Session Therapy as psychotherapy , in which the authors Karen Young and Joseph Jebreen reported on a controversy that arose in Ontario , following the establishment of a new Regulatory College for psychotherapists, which had begun to not recognize the hours of Single-Session Therapy carried out by some professionals who wished to become psychotherapists as therapy.

Post-emergency Covid-19 and single-session therapy: the impact of the pandemic on mental health in Italy

After a few months of respite we find ourselves once again tackling the issue of the Covid-19 emergency and its impact on the psycho-physical health of the people who are more or less directly affected by it.

Furthermore, the particular period we are experiencing sees us engaged in a forced coexistence with an element beyond human control , capable of making even the simplest gestures of daily life complicated.

SST can be effective in the intervention with children and adolescents

With¬†today’s article¬†we try to answer a question that we are often asked in our training courses especially when dealing with the subject of the¬†category of people¬†to which it can be applied.


How can we respond?

The answer can only come from the studies and research carried out on SST in the different application fields and with the different categories of customers. In this regard, today we report the data of a study carried out by Perkins et al . (2006; 2008) on the application of SST with children and adolescents in mental health services .
