I am Les Brinson, and I am a Ph.D. licensed psychologist. As a service provider, I have been in and around mental health counseling and treatment agencies exclusively since 1961. In that 53-year journey, I have had responsibilities for everything behavioral from managing, teaching and treating residential placed teenagers presenting mostly with conduct disorders and cognitive delays to providing individual and group therapy to inmates in a local federal prison to a 40-year term as a university professor and department chair where I taught every clinical or treatment course in the curriculum.
In terms of my mode or modes of counseling of therapy, at some point in my career, I have been an advocate and user of many of them starting with Client-Centered to CBT to an approach (systemic psychotherapy ) that I use frequently with success, in sum, I try to determine early on where the client is, and then draw down a treatment approach to move the client to a process of healing as possible.
In terms of specifics, I expect I draw from the following approaches more frequently than any others.
-Acceptance and commitment
-Solution Focused Therapy
Work and General Life Demands
Career/School Conflicts and Challenges
