Case notes are commonly written in private and hidden away, making the experience confusing and anxiety-provoking for even seasoned psychologists. Due to the necessary limits to confidentiality, psychologists rarely read one another’s notes as a matter of practice. Instead, notes tend to be available only at the request of the client or during situations commonly viewed as negative, such as during a board investigation or court proceedings.


This advanced workshop will provide direction based on ethical principles, as well as a supportive format for discussing and practicing note writing in real time among colleagues. Most mental health professionals find the exercise of writing notes together to be cathartic and affirming, as well as informative. Attendees will be encouraged to evaluate their client population and modality when considering what best applies to their practice, and to share with one another throughout the workshop so as to establish a standard of care based upon ethical and legal principles.
