So you only have eight sessions: What do you do? Integrating evidence-informed practices into time-limited psychotherapy

This two-day webinar is designed for front-line workers and mental health clinicians working in community agencies, family health teams or community health centres where there are a limited number of sessions to see clients. Participants will learn how to structure time-limited psychotherapy and counselling sessions with evidence-informed interventions to make the most of client sessions.
