Babble Guide to Therapists: Do's and Don'ts

Posted by Aphrodite on November 27, 2004, at 8:01:05

Dinah got me thinking on a previous post that there should be a rule book (preferably written by patients) of things they should and shouldn't do. Daisy has mentioned wanting a "therapy rule book." Let's write our own! Dinah's is the first contribution:

1. Do not bring up emotionally charged subjects before a holiday or vacation.

Aphrodite's contribution:

2. Do explain all policies and procedures on the first visit, including phone rules, emergency procedures, and fees.

(For the first 6 months, I was afraid to call, even when I was feeling suicidal. I needed the rules and was too scared to ask. Sore spot with me!)
