What is Brief Therapy?

Brief therapy is intended to be a quick and helpful series of therapy sessions intended to help a therapist guide a patient from a problem to a resolution. This time-sensitive approach to treatment is designed to be a cost-effective method that yields long-term benefits in addition to immediate gains. Its focus is optimized to make the most of each session, with the belief that change can occur in the moment.
