Behavioral clinicians increasingly are being required to shorten therapy without sacrificing clinical impact. The pressure to condense behavioral treatments is likely to intensify as clinicians enter alternative practice settings (primary care, schools, jails) where brief interventions are the norm, not the exception. In this seminar, participants will learn seven basic principles, some derived from the ACT approach and some as old as the field of brief strategic therapy itself, for making the most of brief clinical encounters. We will begin with a brief review of the empirical literature which suggests that brief interventions may actually be more acceptable to clients, and potentially more enduring, than longer term treatments. We will then demonstrate each of the seven principles for success when constructing a brief behavioral intervention. Participants will view a video demonstration showing these principles at work in session. Our goal is to equip practicing behavior therapists with some new ideas and tools that can be implemented immediately in practice.
