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.

2019 is coming to an end and with it the path we have traced through our blog on Single Session Therapy .
In this year we have focused on some specific topics that have ranged from how to implement TSS in Walk-In Services or psychological first aid to the approaches with which to integrate it, sharing theoretical insights, case studies and practical experiences from around the world.
With today’s article we return to talk about the Walk-In and Single Session Therapy services and we do it, sharing almost in real time a news related to the birth of a new quick access and no-appointment service at the University of Ohio , aimed at students in crisis who request psychological support .
The news reported in the online magazine The Newpolitical on 6 December 2019 by journalist Emily Crebs speaks of the current situation of unease detected among the young population of students of the University and what response the latter has decided to provide.
In today ‘s article we report the description of a surprising clinical case described by the researcher and writer Dawson Church with the aim of illustrating how Single Session Therapy combined with a specific technique , in this case EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) , can constitute a single and effective intervention for the treatment of complex and often disabling problems such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) .
The case presented in Capturing the moment: single session therapy and walk-in services (2014) , a book written and edited by psychologists M. Hoyt and M. Talmon , represents in fact one of the most interesting contributions to the theoretical and practical study of single session therapy.
