The expectation of the therapist that therapy can be both very brief and effective is the essence of working in the very brief mode, i.e., the therapist rarely sees the client more than one or two times. Typical methods used are: the miracle question, changing personal history, guided metaphor, conversational reframing, Rossi's "moving hands," and hypnosis. Case examples will be given, and the group will be invited to participate in a brief hypnotic change experience.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe the central importance of expectation in doing very brief therapy.
  2. To describe three methods that can be used for very brief therapy.
