This paper states that Brief Therapy contrasts markedly with the psychoanalytic approaches because Brief Therapy focuses on what is going on in the client's life at the time of the therapy and does not delve into the subconscious or early childhood experiences. The paper also reviews Gestalt Therapy and cognitive therapy and their relationship to Brief therapy. The paper is well researched.
