WHY THESE TOOLS ARE HELPFUL
Interns – you have to hit the ground running as soon as you start your internship! You may get guidance from your supervisors but not the help you need to write the client note and get better at writing them at a consistent pace.
That’s your homework. You have to figure it out, and you will..in between classes, studying, and completing your internship.
Day after day of seeing clients without documenting right away adds up. So, here’s the biggest mistake we make:
WE UNDERESTIMATE THE TIME IT TAKES TO WRITE THE NOTE.
You know what has to get written, but the words escape you to fully describe the session.
As the clinician, you care and take pride in what you do, and you have to focus on making certain the message is conveyed with person-centered language, and each client is different.
SO MUCH TO CONSIDER AND SO LITTLE TIME!
Let's face it - as much as we love our profession, we have a personal life. Let's make sure we make room to meet our professional and personal needs.
