In reply to asking for notes, posted by crazymaisie on February 7, 2005, at 13:18:05

Yeah, I have requested my notes on a number of occasions. Getting them can be a mixed blessing... Depending on what is in them, of course. Sometimes I think 'OMG thats how they interpreted it when I did / said that' - and I find lots of misunderstandings. Still, more food for therapy I suppose... Sometimes I have times where I thought they were doing something particularly unhelpful, and oftentimes their rationale for that is in those notes. So it can also help you understand where they are coming from a bit more.

A mixed blessing. It can help - but be careful, it can also hurt.

I have seen a couple of t's where they would mail me the notes for the last session before the next one. I found that to be really helpful. Misunderstandings etc could be cleared up / hashed out in the next session. I like that best, but haven't requested that off my current clinician.

Actually, I think it may be time for me to request those notes again...
