Reviews

  1. I came to this book looking to prove to myself that there really was no such thing as single session therapy, but I was soon eating humble pie! This book is such a great resource for all therapists no matter what your views or your therapeutic stance. Capturing the Moment challenges you to think about therapy, your therapy and how you work, and the interventions you give. It informs you through quite brilliant and moving narratives of the client-“therapist relationship, with the crucial process and reflections that enable you to see how this really does work. It is so diverse in its inclusion and transformative in the way it shows how single session therapy works.



    It is indeed in -˜those moments' that we profoundly share with our clients that change happens and this book takes you into a variety of ways to achieve this in one single session. I now believe this is most definitely possible. This will impact your therapy practice whether you view the efficacy of one session, short-term (six sessions) therapy or longer-term relational work; creating and capturing those moments is key, it is a skill and is what makes therapy the most connected vehicle for change.
  2. Carefully crafted single session interventions can produce significant and enduring results. Drs. Hoyt and Talmon and their confreres, all experts in this art form, show the reader how to consistently accomplish immediate psychotherapeutic results.
  3. Hoyt and Talmon and their colleagues have not only demonstrated the effectiveness of brief therapy, but theirs is a timely answer to psychotropic medications which seldom are either appropriate or effective.
  4. This book will force you to think in a new way about psychotherapy and about the efficacy of single session therapy (SST). It is essential reading for anyone who wants to learn about what can be accomplished in one visit. â€-°Any reservations you may hold about SST are thoroughly addressed. This excellent book is filled with a wide variety of case studies, empirical reviews, practical guidelines and personal anecdotes of leaders in the field of SST and walk-in clinics. Kudos to Hoyt and Talmon for bringing this timely collection together.
  5. This volume does an excellent job of showing how the single session interventions can be applied not only in themselves, but also as part of a more general mental health policy, helping to reduce wait lists, give an immediate response to immediate needs, and serve as a healthy counterpart to our tendency to think that in therapy, more is always better.
  6. In a world where we are constantly reminded of the ever-darkening state of mental health, this book provides a ray of hope. The research on single session therapy demonstrates that positive change is not only possible, it is also accessible to all.
