With lengthy waiting lists, reduced resources and demands for more clearly defined performance outcomes, more and more counselors, psychotherapists and psychologists are finding themselves under pressure to provide short-term treatment for their patients. To work briefly, however, can not be just the use a diluted version of longer-term therapeutic model. To work briefly is to work differently and to use a new trans-theoretical model. In "Doing Therapy Briefly" four experienced counselors and psychologists explore ways of working briefly with clients in psychotherapy. The only book to cover the use of brief therapy within all the different schools of thought, this book presents a clear and refreshing approach to working briefly, based on a tried and tested framework for practice. Readers are introduced to the basic principles and theories that guide therapy practice and gain insight into its application through numerous illustrative examples. Written by a team of authors with a wealth of experience in the fields of counseling, psychotherapy and care, this authoritative text will be invaluable to students and professionals alike.

'If you're not familiar with - or even wary of - brief or time-limited approaches to counselling, this book provides a comprehensive introduction that could challenge your way of thinking.  The whole theory behind brief thereapy is in fact an incentive to be present, to check everything out with the client, not to let things slide, hoping that they will come up later. The time is now.' - Sarah Luczaj,, April 2008
