SHORT THERAPY APPROACH
IN A NUTSHELL
The short therapy approach is based on cognitive analytic therapy (CAT).
The short therapy approach is an application we have developed from CAT. It is based on interaction, collaboration and the flexible utilization of reputable methods which are tailored to the customer needs. The short therapy approach is suitable for solving the problems in living and interaction, encountered in your daily life be it in private or at work.
The trick to short therapy is that it is purposeful, going below the surface, to enable change. It is not an attempt to solve everything at once. It is a change in one area of life and an experience of how to face the challenges of life or work, which often initiates a positive chain reaction. One positive change can lead to another.
The founders of Shortum, Katri Kanninen and Liisa Uusitalo-Arola, have written a book on the short therapy approach. At Shortum, we have been educating professionals in short therapy for over a decade.
