How do I prepare for a Consultation?

Once you have made an appointment for Consultation, here are some general guidelines for preparing to make the most out of the consult time:

  1. Have the case you want to work on picked out ahead of time.
  2. Include how long you have been seeing this client.
  3. Include the client’s primary complaints (i.e., their reason for seeking therapy).
  4. Include a basic outline of the client’s family history and trauma history.
  5. Include your primary question for me (for example: How do I make sense of the client’s presentation/symptoms?; I’m stuck—the client’s symptoms are not changing; What do I do now?; etc…).
  6. If you are newly trained in EMDR, include your client’s Top 10 Best & Top 10 Worst Experiences lists (with ages and SUDS levels (0-10)).

NOTE: if you are in a Consultation Group, there is no requirement to present a case.
