Competency Area: Intervention
Restricted to Year III & Year IV students. Restricted to Year IV students from December 10 – 16; open to Year III students on December 17.

Pragmatic and humanitarian rationales for brief treatment are provided by reviews of psychotherapy utilization, outcome, and process research as well as consideration of its relationship to national health care. Approaches derived from a variety of theoretical orientations are surveyed. The elements common to these are identified and presented as a transtheoretical approach to therapy which can be used from all orientations. Cases are used to illustrate strategy and techniques.
