The Paradigm Of The Beginnings Work With Clients: The First Contact


Previously Recorded (Non-Contact) 2 CEUs.
Presenter: Allan M. Gonsher, LIMHP, LCSW, RPT-S.
This webinar will discuss referral sources, the initial call, the decision to use individual or family work, and many other intricate considerations when engaging a client for the first time. We often lose sight of the “joining” aspect of therapy and find ourselves with cancellations or no shows when the initial contact has not been established.



Learning Objectives:
Learn about referrals and how to engage clients
Learn how to utilize the phone, the initial contact, to ensure a client will appear for the first session
Be challenged to decide whether individual, family, or another modality will be used in the first initial encounter
