Single-session therapy and professional development: when SST can make the profession of psychologist more effective

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.

 (Harvey MacKay)

 

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.

Single-session therapy and psychotherapy

‚Äú¬†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.
