After making a connection with and establishing a relationship with the client, I contend that all brief therapy relies on some variation or combination of three interventions: Changing the doing (actions/interactions), changing the viewing (focus of attention and meaning attribution/interpretation) and changing the context (the social or physical environment) involved in or around the problem. The session will give details about how to conceptualize and implement these shifts in brief clinical work.

Educational Objectives:

  1. List the three major intervention types in brief therapy.
  2. Use at least one method of changing the doing.
  3. Use at least one method of changing the viewing.
