Windy Drydenwindy copy

Emeritus Professor of Psychotherapeutic Studies at Goldsmiths College, University of London and author of 200 books.  One of the first people to be trained in CBT, and first Professor of Counselling in the UK, Windy trained with Dr’s Albert Ellis, Aaron T. Beck and Arnold Lazarus.  He presents an individual viewpoint on CBT and psychotherapy as its practiced today and its future development.



There has always been discussion over whether therapy should be short or long term such as early criticisms of long term psychodynamic therapy to more recent short term IAPT provision.

Many therapists may link Single Session Therapy with being “profit focused”, “unrealistic” or even “mediocre”. This seminar aims to enlighten and enable you to work effectively with clients in a single session, achieving realistic but positive results with a view to future therapeutic work.

Professor Dryden builds on the work of a number of practitioners including Moshe Talmon’s work on Single Session Therapy, Ost’s One Session CBT Treatment for Phobias and Andrea Reinecke’s single session exposure treatment of panic attacks at Oxford University.

You will learn the basis of this new Single Session Integrated CBT (SSI-CBT) approach, where it can and can’t be used, protocols to follow and the application of unique therapeutic elements.

The workshop will cover:

  • The do’s and don’ts of SSI-CBT
  • Indications and contraindications of using SSI-CBT
  • The components of SSI-CBT
  • Setting the stage
  • Creating a focus
  • Problem assessment and goal setting
  • Utilising the client’s strengths
  • Doing the work with an emphasis on future
  • What happens after the session/evaluation
  • Therapists skills needed
  • Live demonstrations of SSI-CBT
