Until quite recently, therapist training was predicated on the notion that therapy is an ongoing process. Single-Session Integrated CBT (SSI-CBT) questions this. In this book, Windy Dryden takes long standing research on SSI therapy and transfers it to the field of CBT in a timely and conceptual application. Based on his extensive work demonstrating the benefits of single-session CBT to public and professional audiences, Dryden has developed a single-session approach for work in the therapy and coaching fields.

Comprising 30 key points, and divided into two parts - Theory and Practice - this concise book covers the key features of SSI-CBT. It will offer essential guidance for students and practitioners experienced in CBT, as well as practitioners from other theoretical orientations who require an accessible guide to the distinctive theoretical and practical features of this exciting new approach.

Reviews

"Drawing from the work of Albert Ellis and others, this is the definitive guide to one-session work with clients using an active-directive, problem-focused integrated CBT approach. It also contains lots of ideas and practical tips that should be of interest for therapists of other theoretical persuasions wanting to help clients rapidly. Well done!" - Michael F. Hoyt, Ph.D., co-originator of the Single Session Therapy approach; author of Brief Psychotherapies and Some Stories Are Better than Others; coeditor of Capturing the Moment: Single Session Therapy and Walk-In Services and One at a Time: Single Session Therapy by Walk-In or Appointment.

"One of a kind book! Windy Dryden provide us with a detailed and rich guidelines to be used with a wide variety of human problems, which often can be greatly helped by utilizing his integrative CBT approach in a single session consultation." - Dr. Moshe Talmon, author of Single Session therapy: Maximizing the effect of the first (and often only) Therapeutic encounter and Single session Solutions: A guide to practical, effective and affordable therapy, co-editor of Capturing the moment: Single-session therapy and walk-in services
"(SSI-CBT): Distinctive Features by prolific author, Windy Dryden, is a true gem for therapists in the real world of clinical practice where a single session is what you will need to work with. This master clinician provides the therapist with details about every aspect of having a therapeutic effect in a short period of time. Concise but right on target and informative, this book will prove invaluable to therapists at all levels of experience. Highly recommended." - Robert L. Leahy, Ph.D., Director, American Institute for Cognitive Therapy
