Our planning committee is approaching this event with humility, curiosity and an openness to the community. This interactive workshop will provide opportunities for participants to offer their unique ideas, comments, and feelings and to discuss the populations they work with. The workshop (and the model itself) employs a respectful collaborative tone throughout. Advertising will be sent to all levels of licensure from students through clinical license. The organizing committee is reaching out to BIPOC and LGBTQ+ communities and will provide financial assistance to increase access. Our workshop space is ADA compliant and we will have ASL interpreters available.

Counselors in all levels of care are facing increasingly long waitlists. Single Session Therapy (SST) operates from the assumptions that each session is a whole, potentially complete therapeutic entity in itself; that the power is ultimately in the client; that all you really have is now; and that helping people make small changes can lead to significant and lasting changes after one session.
