Whether you are seeking one consultation, several meetings, or participating in one of our groups, you will receive a consultation contract. We believe in the parallel process between consultation and therapy. This contract serves as a written Informed Consent that outlines the potential risks and benefits to consultation. This contract will also be discussed at the beginning of your first consultation session to ensure that there are no questions or concerns.
Yes. . . Research shows that regular consultation with other professionals, especially those with strong clinical skills who have been working in the field for many years, helps keep mental health care providers healthy. This results in less clinical “errors” that could lead to boundary crossings or other situations that might result in a report to a licensure board or a patient complaint. Looked at this way, consultation is good proactive care to ensure you are functioning well. It is analogous to keeping your yearly medical check-ups, or therapists who are engaged in their own therapy work.
Yes. . . Ethical codes in all professional mental health fields discuss the importance of clinical consultation. When seeking consultation on complex cases you can document that you have consulted with a team member in your clinical notes as this is a good risk management strategy.
No. . Collaborative Pathways provides consultation to therapists who are licensed at their terminal degree i.e., you no longer need supervision hours and can practice independently. As such, we are not acting in a supervisor role, and thus a therapist is responsible for the care they provide.
