The Wonderful Use of Numbers/ The Counselor’s Compass/ July

I don’t know how many other therapists and counselor’s mention the use of numbers in the treatment plan to the client and guardian/ parent during intake.  I find the practice very useful and an encouraging way to start the relationship.

There are such clear terms of goal-setting to spell out for the folks sitting before me at intake time.  “I’m going to help you with this behavior that is done 5-6x per day, 5 days per week and bring it down to preferably zero times or at least a smaller number.  This could possibly equal more time to do what you want and less time being in trouble.             DWP
