A big congratulations to Gambler's Help Southern's therapeutic counsellor, Gretta, on the publication of her first book chapter, ‘Single Session Therapy with Those Affected by Gambling: Listening to Clients and Their Therapeutic Counsellors,’ in the book 'Single Session Thinking and Practice in Global, Cultural and Familial Contexts: Expanding Applications.'
Gretta has been part of the Connect Health & Community team for more than 10 years and was selected with her co-authors to contribute a chapter to the book after presenting at International Single Session Therapy Symposium, ‘Single Session Thinking: Going global one step at a time’ in 2019.
She undertook extensive research with her co-authors, Vicky and Bonita, and believes the book chapter blended their individual strengths in the field.
"The experience of contributing to the book was both exciting and challenging," Gretta said.
In the work, Gretta explains a ‘single session therapy’ model where Gambler’s Help Southern (GHS) clients and their families are offered one-off therapeutic consultations with a family therapy team of Alfred and GHS counsellors, as part of their ongoing counselling at GHS.
"The team finds that this model facilitates conversations of hope and connection between the struggling parties," she said.
“To use a quote from Brene Brown in our chapter, ‘Shame happens between people and it heals between people’,” Gretta said.
The book is available at any good online retailer.
