Re: Questions to ask psych/therapist

In reply to Questions to ask psych/therapist, posted by mark on July 25, 2000, at 13:27:33

What a good question!

I usually want to know if my therapist will help me identify and work toward general goals, what type of therapy does he or she generally use (usually there is a combination, but one that underscores the therapist's orientation). Do you want group, individual or combination? Does therapist do groups?

Is therapist familiar with meds and how does he/she feel about them. Ie, get off as soon as possible, or what?

Insurance, payment plans, etc.

I'm sure others will add to this. Good luck, Shar.
