Short info

Brief Strategic Therapy is a unique approach to training and human problems solving that presents specific theoretical foundations and practices in constant evolution based on the latest empirical research.

It’s a brief therapeutic intervention (meaning with "brief" below 10 sessions) that is engaged, on the one hand in eliminating dysfunctional symptoms or behaviours for which the person is coming to therapy
