Time management in psychotherapy sessions


Aside from making sure that therapy sessions are actually effective, I also want to facilitate conversation or play in a way that uses time management.  The Jungle Pack workbook is with the intention of helping other therapists tune into their client‘s struggle with themselves and each of the multiple environments (school, home and community).  The prompts which cover universal situations for human beings of any age, gender and circumstance are meant to draw out conversation items.  On a week to week basis, I and others in my field are faced with a client’s sense of confusion and struggle to set priorities for conversation.  I will go ahead and speak for the lot of us and say that a therapist’s aim is to help the client (or consumer) to quit spinning his/ her wheels and move ahead.  Time management and having an anchor for conversation go hand in hand for effectiveness in the direction of feeling better and out of idle.
