On Time in Brief Therapy

  • Michael F. Hoyt
Part of the Applied Clinical Psychology book series (NSSB)


Time is of the essence in brief psychotherapy. The message, by definition, is brevity: Do it now, no time to waste, be efficient and parsimonious, seize the moment, be here now, get on with it. At core, brief therapy is defined more by an attitude than by the specific number of treatment sessions. The brief therapist operates with the belief and expectation that change can occur in the moment, that the patient has within himself or herself the power to be different or to remain the same (Goulding & Goulding, 1978, 1979). With skillful assistance, the patient will recognize his or her response-ability and thus move from being a victim to a creator of his or her psychological reality (Hoyt, 1977; Kaiser, 1965; Schafer, 1973).
