Moshe Talmon, an Israeli psychologist, published a book on single-session therapy that brought together earlier disparate efforts to work with clients in one session and that launched widespread interest in this field. This interest led to developments in both single-session therapy by appointment and walk-in therapy worldwide, particularly in Australia and Canada where the first two international symposia on this subject took place. My interest in single-session work was piqued by these developments but also by Albert Ellis’s single-session demonstrations of REBT in front of an audience with volunteers from that audience in what came to be known as the Friday Night Workshop.
