We explore some aspects together

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!

From the world of research an interesting study on the effects of a single one-day online therapy session to help cure postpartum depression

With¬†today’s article¬†we draw from the world of research to visualize another¬†area of ‚Äč‚Äčintervention¬†in which¬†Single Session Therapy¬†can be effective and extremely valid, especially if used in times of emergency.
