With lengthy waiting lists, reduced resources and demands for more clearly defined performance outcomes, more and more counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists are finding themselves under pressure to provide short-term treatment for their patients. In this book the authors argue that to work briefly counsellors need not just use a diluted version of their usual longer-term therapeutic model. They suggest that to work briefly is to work differently and they present the basic principles underlying a new trans-theoretical model.

'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
