Summary

The chapter outlines low intensity psychological Interventions (LIPIs). These are treatments that have low usage of a specialist’s therapist time (e.g., 5–8 sessions), or uses the time in a manner that reaches a large number of people. Low intensity does not refer to the client’s experience. Even though the contact with the specialist is less, the client’s involvement in terms of time, effort and emotional investment can be intense. The chapter outlines in a practical manner stepped-care, how to offer choice to service users, and shared decision-making. Given that LIPIs can be challenging to master, the chapter provides an illustrative example of adapting case formulation and treatment planning to this mode of delivery.
