Can one session of therapy be enough for some people? The answer, is most definitely, yes. This volume brings together the latest information on single-session therapy and walk-in services. It describes what can sometimes be accomplished in one visit, whether client and clinician set out in advance to have a single-session therapy (SST) or if the therapy could have gone longer but client and clinician feel the one session was all that was needed.

This volume, Capturing the Moment: single-session therapy and walk-in services, starts with an extensive overview of the field and includes contributions from over twenty experts who have practiced single-session therapy. Contributors include Ernest Rossi, Steve Andreas, Dawson Church, Harvey Ratner, Douglas Flemons, James Gustafson, Rubin Battino, Bradford Keeney, Jeff Young, Arnie Silve, Monte Bobele, Moshe Talmon, Michael Hoyt and many, many others. The contributors draw on various brief therapy approaches involving a wide range of creative methods.

The book describes the history, theory, utility and practice (clinical and administrative) of single-session and walk-in therapy. In keeping with the international scope of SST and walk-in services, the volume contains reports from the United States, Canada, Israel, Australia, England, Mexico and China. Each chapter stands alone with its contribution and the reader is able to choose those sections that are the most relevant to their practice.
In today’s therapeutic milieu, when sometimes less is better than more, this volume will lead mental health professionals in the 21st Century to a knowledge of what works best for many people.
