In today’s article we present to you the last of the three pioneers of Single Session Therapy who will participate in the IV Symposium on SST which this year will be held on 10, 11 and 12 November in Italy , in Rome , Moshe Talmon .
Moshe Talmon, Ph.D. (University of Pennsylvania ’82) initiated a series of studies at Kaiser Permanente Medical Group on patients who failed to show up for their second appointment after their first therapy session. Later, together with Michael Hoyt and Robert Rosenbaum , he began a study of 60 attempts at scheduled single-session therapy with patients who had required lengthy therapy.
In today’s article and in the next articles we will introduce you to all the Single Session Therapy experts in the world who will participate in the IV Symposium on SST which this year will be held on 10, 11 and 12 November in Italy , in Rome .
First of all we present Michael F. Hoyt , pioneer together with Moshe Talmon and Robert Rosenbaum of Single Session Therapy .
The Italian Center for Single Session Therapy , in the figure of Flavio Cannistrà ( co-founder together with Federico Piccirili of the Italian Center for Single Session Therapy ), has collaborated with him for the drafting of books and scientific articles on SST , also MF Hoyt as a trainer he participated in various workshops on SST, held in Italy by ICSST starting from 2016.
In today’s article we present Flavio Cannistrà an expert on Brief Therapies and founder together with Federico Piccirilli of the first center for research and training on Single Session Therapy (Italian Center for Single Session Therapy) in Italy, as well as director of the 4th Symposium on SST to be held this year on November 10, 11 and 12 in Rome, Italy.
In today’s article we introduce Federico Piccirilli an expert on Brief Therapies and founder together with Flavio Cannistrà of the first center for research and training on Single Session Therapy (Italian Center for Single Session Therapy) in Italy, who promoted the realization of the 4th Symposium on SST to be held this year on November 10, 11 and 12 in Rome, Italy.
Time is free but it is priceless. You can’t own it but you can use it.
You can’t keep it but you can spend it.
Once you lose it you can never get it back.
This somewhat unpredictable and difficult year is coming to an end and as often happens at the end of an adventure we find ourselves taking stock of what happened, the projects completed and those to be started .
Since 2017 , the year in which the Italian Center for Single Session Therapy was established , an intense path has been launched in which many research, training and dissemination activities have been carried out , all activities linked by a common thread or that of the professional development of the psychologist.
“ 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.
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.
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 .
Only a few weeks have passed since the publication of the article Examining the Incidence and Clients’ Experiences of Single Session Therapy in Italy: A Feasibility Study in the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Family Therapy, a new achievement by the Italian Center for Single Session Therapy .
Research on SST has been conducted all over the world, but up to now not in Italy, therefore this study represents the first international contribution of our country to Single Session Therapy .
