WHAT IS BRIEF THERAPY?
Many people have the misunderstanding that Brief Therapy is about setting limits on time or number of sessions. It is not! Brief Therapy is about setting goals, having a collaborative relationship between the therapist and client, and a therapist that is more than a "bobble head." This more directive approach often leads to the "side effect" of decreased number of sessions or shorter therapy time. Brief Therapy is also about skill development and practice. Often times, clients will gain knowledge and skills and may take a break from therapy. After they have used their new skills and knowledge, they may come back to therapy to achieve additional goals.
What one of our clients has to say about Brief Therapy:
"I thought therapy had to be about a deep dive into my past. When I talked to my counselor and we figured out the things that have been in the way of me getting to my goals, developed a plan to remove those things and I started taking action on meeting my goals, I immediately felt hopeful and energized. I was reminded that I am capable and able to feel success in my life. And now I have the tools to keep things in motion and I know what to do if I have a setback. I'm grateful to have found this type of therapy. It has made such a huge difference in my life!"
The Partnership for a Drug-Free America has put out an intervention e-book called, "What to do if Your Child is Drinking or Using Drugs"
