Single-Session Therapy and Its Future What SST Leaders Think

By Windy Dryden Copyright 2021

    Single-Session Therapy and Its Future provides an introduction to the major principles of single-session therapy and what currently constitutes good practice in the field.

    The book is a timely reflection on where SST is at, and where it might be heading. It is comprised of interviews with well-known leaders and experts in this field, outlining what they think will happen, hope will happen and fear might happen as the future of SST unfolds. The book further notes the growth and development of SST in many different contexts internationally in the past 30 years.

    The book will be of interest to practitioners with little knowledge/experience of the SST "mindset" or mode of service delivery, as well as seasoned SST practitioners. It will also appeal to practitioners working with many client groups around the world.
