Single Session Therapy: Maximizing the Effect of the First (and often Only)
Talmon, M. San Francisco, Jossey – bass, 1990
This book is aimed for therapists who were trained to see therapy as a long and in-depth process that last for years and realize that in practice many patients drop out of treatment much earlier than expected by the therapist. The book present research findings and many clinical examples to guide the therapist to make the most of each therapeutic encounter as if it could be the last
“we once assumed that long term therapy was the base from which all therapy was to be judged. Now it appears that therapy of single interview could become the standard for estimating how long and how successful therapy should be”
