5 Minute Psychotherapy Techniques
Trauma-Informed Practices
by Jenny H. Hsueh

Five Minute Psychotherapy Techniques is a one-stop resource that makes psychotherapy from many schools of thought easy to learn and apply. The techniques are trauma-informed, evidence-based, and drawn from mindfulness, body-based therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, mentalization-based therapy, interpersonal therapy, dialectical behavioural therapy, psychoanalysis, and hypnotherapy. These straight-forward techniques can be used to treat many different mental health concerns, including anxiety, depression, substance use, post-traumatic stress disorder, and relationship challenges. Each technique is presented alongside a concise verbal script, so it can be used even under tight time constraints. Dr. Hsueh empowers clinicians to guide patients through effective interventions while sticking to their preferred appointment length.

"This generous and diverse collection of interventions captures the spirit of trauma-informed mental health care… A rich assortment of case examples, well-known to every primary care provider, flesh out this gem of a book… I highly recommend that Five Minute Psychotherapy Techniques be kept close at hand in every family medicine clinic and office.” —Harry Zeit, MD.
