Questions Every Therapist Should Ask

Posted by daisym on September 28, 2004, at 19:07:56

I've been thinking about this, especially given the thread on books and on office decorations. What questions should every therapist ask, not in an interview format, but off and on during therapy? I have a few:

Have you done any of your own research around this? (whatever "this" is)

How are you doing between sessions?

Is there anything that you need/want/could suggest to would make you more comfortable during sessions?

Tell me about your typical schedule and any upcoming variations I should know about.

What else? Either things they have asked that surprised you or thinks you wish they would ask.

I also think each therapist should begin with new clients by clearly addressing some house keeping issues, like yes or no to food/drink, feet on the furniture is Ok, books can be borrowed, or not, how to reach between sessions and what their phone policy is. I know, some theories believe that how the client negotiates these things is revealing, but I think it is just common courtesy.
