Single Session Therapy (SST) is a therapeutic practice that allows you to integrate other therapeutic approaches within it and with today ‘s article we will illustrate how this opportunity can also be extended to Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) long-term approach .
Although there is not much research on it, psychologist Kristin M. Matthews (2018) in the article ” The Integration of Emotion-Focused Therapy Within Single-Session Therapy”, offers a study in which she demonstrates how EFT has some useful elements for carrying out the single session . The study also provides practical indications on the use of the model in therapy and on how some elements can lead, for example, to the development of a strong therapeutic alliance .
One of the most debated topics when it comes to Brief Therapies is undoubtedly that of the therapeutic alliance, when the debate then focuses on the way in which this factor affects Single Session Therapy, the comparison takes on even more heated tones.
With today ‘s article we will focus on a study carried out by Chrystal T. Fullen (2019) which describes precisely the process of co-construction of the therapeutic alliance in the context of SST starting from the analysis of some therapeutic conversations.
School has always been and continues to be the focus of many debates . Most of these relate to its organization and functioning . Others, on the other hand, even if to a lesser extent, focus on the teaching profession and the possible health risks that this professional category may face. In fact, if teaching is carried out in disorganized and fragmented contexts , where teamwork is difficult and the achievement of common objectives can become a source of great stress . With today’s article we will therefore describe a Single Session Therapy intervention aimed at a group of teachers in conditions of long-term psychophysical disability in the province of Alberta (Canada) with the aim of maximizing their recovery . The intervention arose from a study of the health of such teachers , most of whom were neglected in their rehabilitation period (Jevne & Zingle, 1990).
Phase 2 represented, after the lockdown, an important and decisive moment for the professional life of the psychologist . On the web and on social networks, there was a great ferment of ideas and projects to overcome this difficult phase of recovery. There were many proposals, some focus on marketing strategies , others concern the formation of new methods of intervention and disorders to be treated, finally there is all the information on the state of the art of our profession .
The coronavirus emergency is about to turn to the so-called Phase 2 or to that moment of easing of social restriction measures, which will lead to taking the first timid steps towards the much desired freedom.
Before moving on to imagining the near future of Phase 2, let’s see what the psychological effects of quarantine and how to reduce (Brooks et al., 2020) are according to a scientific article published in The Lancet magazine and social .
The goal of today’s article will be to identify the possible issues people will need to manage and how psychologists can prepare to intervene.
If in the previous article we explored the theme of emergency and how Single Session Therapy adapts to psychological first aid models, today we will focus on the consequences that a tragic event such as the Pandemic can determine on a psychological and access to mental health services.
Furthermore, through the description of a clinical case in which the TSS method was applied with a woman involved in the 2010 Haiti earthquake , we will see how TSS can be concretely used in post-disaster intervention (Guthrie, 2016) .
In today ‘s article we will address a highly topical issue with respect to the world of psychotherapies or the growth of psychological services provided via the web , focusing in particular on a research concerning the provision of an online Single Session Therapy service for young people who have a gambling addiction (Rodda et al ., 2016).
In today ‘s article we will focus on an innovative model of brief group therapy based on the work of psychiatrist Irvine Yalom (1983) , included in the Program Employed for Persons (PEP ) for patients with addiction problems, carried out at Eagleville Hospital ( Pennsylvania) , a hospital facility that offers different levels of assistance ranging from acute psychiatric hospitalization to specialized residential addiction treatment (Weiner, 1987).
Let’s resume 2020 with a new cycle of articles that will allow us to always be updated and to discover how the Single Session Therapy method can be applied in different ways and areas of intervention.
