Lectures by Windy Dryden

Windy Dryden is Emeritus Professor of Psychotherapeutic Studies at Goldsmiths University of London and is a Fellow of the British Psychological Society. He has authored or edited 232 books. His current interests are in single-session and very brief interventions within a therapy and coaching context.

Relevant publications include:

  • When Time is at a Premium (Rationality Publications, 2016)
  • Single Session Integrated CBT: Distinctive Features (Routledge, 2017)
  • Very Brief Cognitive-Behavioural Coaching (Routledge, 2017)

His book Very Brief Therapeutic Conversations (Routledge, 2018) is focused on work he has done conducting live demonstrations of therapy/coaching in front of an audience that last 30 minutes or less. He has done more than 370 such demonstrations all over the world.

His latest books are:

  • Single-Session Therapy: 100 Key Points and Techniques (Routledge, 2019) which outlines the theoretical underpinnings and practical applications of the single-session mindset
  • Single-Session One-At-A-Time Therapy: A Rational Emotive Behavioural Approach (Routledge, 2019) which presents an REBT perspective on SST/OAAT
  • Single-Session Therapy: Distinctive Features (Routledge, 2019) which outlines the theoretical and practical distinctive features of this way of working with clients.

His goal is to disseminate SST/OAAT with the hope that it might help provide help at the point of need within the NHS, a form of IAPT where the ‘I’ stands for ‘Immediate’.
