About this book

Introduction

With lengthy waiting lists, reduced resources and demands for more clearly defined performance outcomes, more and more counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists are finding themselves under pressure to provide short-term treatment for their patients. In this book the authors argue that to work briefly counsellors need not just use a diluted version of their usual longer-term therapeutic model. They suggest that to work briefly is to work differently and they present the basic principles underlying a new trans-theoretical model.
