Training Counseling Students to Work More Effectively with Short-Term Clients
Hatchett, Gregory
International Journal for the Advancement of Counselling, v33 n3 p206-215 Sep 2011
Most clients attend only a few sessions before dropping out of counseling and, consequently, never traverse the series of stages delineated in many counseling process models. There is frequently a mismatch between the counseling process as portrayed in many counseling textbooks with the counseling process students are likely to experience when they begin practicum and internship placements. Based on the counseling duration and premature termination literature, this article considers several models that counselor educators could adopt to better prepare students to work with the large proportion of clients who will often attend only a few sessions before terminating contact.
