As walk-in clinics and single session consultations grow in popularity for people seeking quick access to mental health supports, clinicians who provide these services must learn to maximize their time to effectively work with clients. Visitors to walk-in mental health clinics and single sessions often have significant challenges and present with complex and high-risk issues including, but not limited to, trauma, abuse, suicidal thoughts, self-harm and grief. While there is a significant body of research that supports the effectiveness of both single session models and brief therapy, many clinicians continue to experience challenges effective when faced with complex clinical situations.

This hands-on workshop will draw upon the theoretical foundations of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Narrative Therapy and Mindfulness theories and offer many opportunities to practice newly learned skills. Emphasis is placed on nurturing resilience, coping and optimism about the future as well as developing sensitive and realistic goals with clients.

• Identify key elements of effective single session therapy
