CAP PC/TEACH Podcast Academy 11/17/2017 Episode 4: What Families Should Expect at the First Therapy Session
In this episode of CAP-PC’s Podcast Academy, Rochester Liaison Coordinator Amy Lyons draws upon her extensive experience as a child therapist to help you better understand what happens when your patient goes to his/her first therapy session. There is a real focus in the first session on developing a relationship as well as some of the logistic necessities of starting a therapeutic relationship. You can help your families understand the realities and expectations of that first session in therapy by preparing them beforehand. Future Podcast Academy episodes will focus on different types and styles of psychotherapy and how you can encourage patients and families to get the most of their therapy experience.
