Patients tend to come only once or twice for a psychiatric visit, thus the author proposes to transform the traditional first psychiatric visit into a single bi-systemic therapeutic consultation aiming at an immediate therapeutic outcome: the stimulation of self-healing resources. The consultation is bi-systemic as it is both systematic-analytic and intuitive. This type of transformation of the first visit could increase the rate of rapid and agreed discharges and reduce the number of psychiatric dropouts maximizing therapeutic efficiency and effectiveness. The author concludes the paper recommending a specific training. .
