Professor Windy Dryden: single-session and One-at-a-Time (OAAT) therapy: a 1 day workshop
In this workshop, Professor Windy Dryden will discuss the nature, principles and practice of single-session and one-at-a-time therapy that has been developed to provide a response to that need and to reflect the fact that the most frequent number of sessions that clients have internationally is 'one'. He will make the point that single-session and one-at-a-time work is best viewed as a mindset rather than as an approach, and will stress that SST/OAAT can be practised by therapists using their preferred orientation. Using volunteers from the audience who seek help for current issues that they are prepared to discuss in front of an audience of their peers – he will demonstrate his approach to this way of working.
