Region 4 Full Day Workshop – Vancouver
Presenter: Glen Grigg, PhD, RCC
When clinical hours are scarce; when clients have little time; when there is a crisis to be dealt with; when you need to stabilize a client before other therapy can proceed; when third-party payers give you only a few hours to do your work—these are all contexts in which it is helpful to have the option to do brief therapy.
While brief therapy is not for all problems, and not for all clients, it is a powerful set of competencies and ideas that can be applied to a broad range of cases when time matters.
Brief therapy is not a short version of other kinds of therapy—it is a unique set of skills.
What you will learn:
This workshop will review the essential ideas behind brief psychotherapy, involve participants in experiential exercises about structuring brief therapy sessions, and practice the skills of change, all the while attending to the ethics of respectful, socially responsible psychotherapy.
