Single session therapy is a form of brief therapy that challenges the idea that long-term change can only come through on-going sessions. There is consistent evidence of the effectiveness of brief interventions in the literature (Bloom, 2001; Campbell, 1999; Talmon, 1990). Over the past 20 years, there has been a significant shift in psychotherapy towards a briefer form of therapy. Budman, Hoyt, and Friedman (1992) have reviewed the literature and outlined the many benefits of a single therapy session. Single session therapy treats each session as a complete therapy in and of itself. The client presents a concern and a goal(s) is constructed. Clients develop a plan on how to address their issues and gain an increased awareness of their strengths and resources. A successful single session leaves open the possibility of further ongoing work if needed, while being open to acting on risk concerns as they arise in the session. In fact, clients who are more reluctant to attend long-term therapy sessions are more likely to accept a one-time session than to make a commitment to ongoing work.
