|Psychotherapy is essentially the listening to, and talking with, those whose problems and anxieties have become too great a burden for them to cope alone. Its aim is to help the troubled individual to understand and to resolve their predicament. Psychotherapy leads the individual to deeper understanding, resolution, recovery and self-worth.
Most therapy is brief, which can mean anything from one to twenty-five sessions. Yet a lot of training will not prepare therapists to work briefly. This course is formulated specifically to train the student to work briefly by design rather than by default.
