Background Information Name: Sara Khan Age:24Height:5’7Weight:150 LbsEducation: Bachelors in Biomed Work: Research Assistant Medication: None Dialogue Counselor:Hi welcome!Client:Hi. How are you?Counselor: Good. I’ve been looking forward to meeting you. Did you find the place easily.Client:Yes I did. I’m not very familiar with this area. But I did find it.Counselor: Good. I’m so glad, I was wondering if you got a chance to read and sign the paperwork and the contract that you were given by the receptionist Client:Yes I did.Counselor: Okay excellent. So there’s this topic of confidentiality that I want to go through with you. I want you to have a good understanding of how thatworks. This is a safe place. Counseling is a safe place where you can talk about your concerns freely and certain things that are troubling you. So, everything that we do talk about is kept confidential between you and I. However if I feel that you are at risk of harming yourself or others I will have to break confidentiality. If my case notes are subpoenaed by court for any reason I have to break the confidentiality. Also there may be times were I have to discuss some of the things we talk about with my supervisor. However if that situation arises then I will make sure you remain anonymous with my supervisor. So is that okay with you? Do you have any questions?
●(Confidentiality) Whatever is discussed will stay between the client andcounselor Client: No. That makes sense.Counselor: If any of these stages come up, were I have to break confidentiality, I will tell you in advance.Client:Okay. No problem Counselor: Great.. So, another thing that I wanted to make clear is that we have weekly group sessions with clients as well. So, if you are also interestedin that please let me know .
