Recently I've been getting a lot of questions about a somewhat controversial topic- collaborative documentation. While I don't think everyone should use this strategy, I definitely think it's worth considering.
Collaborative documentation (sometimes called concurrent documentation) can actually look very different for different therapists!
In this video I review four ways you can incorporate this strategy in your counseling practice right now:
Writing notes with clients in session
Writing part of the note with clients during session
Sharing notes with clients after they are written
Having clients complete intake paperwork before the initial session
I also go through some of the benefits and potential drawbacks of this technique:
Less time writing notes (the most obvious benefit!)
Increased communication and connection with your clients
Reduction of errors in documentation
Better engagement of "resistant" clients
