Single Session Thinking (SST) is a therapeutic approach which has evolved on the premise that the first psychotherapy session is potentially the most therapeutic and has the greatest influence on outcomes. It also operates on the assumption that the first session may be the only session that the client attends.
Whilst this approach may not suit all individuals, research has found that the most common length of psychotherapy in Australia is a single session.
Drawing on the foundations of SST, Dr Rabba will provide an overview of effective strategies that you can utilise when supporting clients in brief therapy. She will also cover the basic philosophy of this therapeutic approach and how to embed it in your practice.
