Our next one-day CPD Workshop
Saturday, 2nd March 2019 : 10:00-16:30
Single-Session and One-at-a-Time (OAAT) Therapy
Facilitated by Windy Dryden
While Carl Rogers discussed the importance of the ‘core conditions’ in
counselling and therapy, clients often claim that what is also
therapeutic is being seen at the point of their need rather than at the
point of service availability .
In this workshop, I 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 ‘1’.
I 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. I
will demonstrate my approach to this way of working with volunteers
from the audience who seek help for current issues that they are
prepared to discuss in front of an audience of their peers.
