Monte Bobele – Single Session Therapy

Monte Bobele – Single Session Therapy 18.-19.3.2021

Single Session Therapy
Monte Bobele

The aim of this workshop is to provide participants the skills required to organize and conduct ethical, culturally sensitive, cost-effective brief therapy/coaching in mental health practices. Therapists and clinic administrators will leave with ideas for establishing walk-in services in their practices to reduce, or eliminate, wait lists and downtime from no-shows and cancellations.

This workshop will introduce therapists to brief therapy/coaching using lecture, discussion, role play and video examples of the principles for conducting effective one-at-a-time sessions.

Participants will learn a mindset that supports brief therapy/coaching work, the application of brief therapy/coaching principles, and setting appropriate goals with clients. Planned single-session therapy was first described over 20 years ago by Talmon, Hoyt and Rosenbaum. This workshop will introduce the principles of SST that address the three research findings cited above. Moreover, because researchers have found that most therapeutic change occurs in the first 6-8 sessions, we will show how to maximize the impact of the first, and perhaps only, session a client is likely to attend.

One goal of SST is to provide clients with a helpful experience so that they will be more likely to return for further visits if they are needed. SST is not designed to be the only therapeutic encounter for clients, it is designed to be a helpful therapeutic encounter that gets clients moving in a positive direction - taking a first step in that direction. For those who would benefit from additional sessions, SST may provide an encouraging experience with psychotherapy services and increase the likelihood they will return in the future.
