Single Session Contact in Online Therapeutic Practice

In single session consultations, it's important to structure the session with a beginning, middle and end; narrow the data and approach the therapy with some pragmatism.

Participants of this workshop will engage with valuable strategies and tools that can be integrated into their practice.

Learning outcomes

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • make the most effective use of just one hour 
  • narrow the data
  • understand that, in walk-in therapy, the goal is for the client to leave the session with a sense of emotional relief and some sort of positive outcome
  • learn, as early as possible, what the client wants from the session
  • understand client motivation
  • learn about risk and safety.

Ideal for

Clinicians, social workers, community organisation workers, health professionals, youth workers, child and family workers and counsellors at any level of experience.
