Brief therapy can be defined succinctly as Time-sensitive treatment to relieve psychological distress and/or promote growth or as The development of a collaborative alliance and an emphasis on patient/client strengths in the service of an efficient attainment of co-created goals. Nowadays insurance companies, HMOs, counseling centers and consumers all desire and often require brief treatment for psychological problems.
