“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

How to conduct an SST with the family the guidelines of the Bouverie Centre

A frequent question when it comes to Single Session Therapy is whether this method can be applied to all areas of intervention, one of these is that which concerns work with families .

 Although family work is recognized as important and precious, still today in many cases it is considered as a complex intervention which requires specific preparation , a long time and many resources to be carried out . These beliefs often turn into real obstacles for both professionals and people who ask for help, refusing to offer or ask for services suited to the needs of families.

The foundations of single-session therapy: a history of risk and safety

With today¬†‘s article¬†we will talk about the¬†fundamentals of Single Session Therapy¬†, but we will do so starting from the description of a¬†clinical case in which¬†TSS¬†was applied¬†within a¬†Walk-in service¬†of the¬†Eastside Family Center¬†located in Calgary (Canada).

A few weeks ago we had already addressed the issue of the Single Session/Walk-in and how this method of intervention is used effectively within these mental health services (Slive, McElheran, Lawson, 2008) .  

Today, however, we will focus on the foundations that characterize it and guide its practice .
