Expectation; the very brief therapy book.

Battino, Rubin.

Crown House Publishing Ltd.


189 pages




In this introduction to therapy conducted with the expectation that only a session (or two) will be needed, Battino (counseling, Wright State U.; Milton H. Erickson Society, Dayton, Ohio) describes eclectic interventions that he draws upon: e.g., Ericksonian hypnotherapy, Talmon's single session therapy, solution-oriented approaches, and ceremonies for life transitions. Chapters offer specific techniques, including what to try when all else fails. He treats all clients as being temporarily troubled and on a cash basis.
