Description:  This workshop provides clinicians, in a variety of practice settings, with a Collaborative approach emphasizing the uniqueness of every single session. Adding walk-in/single session capabilities is a way to increase services, decrease staff downtime, and shorten or eliminate waiting lists. The approach is based on current research on brief therapy and uses systemic models of practice that recognize that the average number of sessions for most clients is one.  Learn why you can adopt the motto from Moshe Talmon that 'Every session has the potential to be a single session' and can be a complete treatment.



At the end of the workshop participants will … 

  • Be able to identify 3 ways that Single Session Counseling is different than traditional therapy; 
  • Be able to name how Walk-In and Single Session Counseling reflect the values as collaborative practices; 
  • Be able to use Collaborative questions that are part of Walk-In and Single Session Counseling; 
  • Learn the relevant statistics on dropout and follow-through for counseling clients; 
  • Learn how to manage the ethical concerns that may arise in doing Walk-In and Single Session Counseling.
