Interim client progress


Learning Objectives:
• Integrate theory, research literature, and practice in case conceptualization, planning, and counselling interventions
• Reconstruct the counselling process for one or more counselling clients, using case notes

sessions. The report should be 12 pages, double-spaced, using strict APA style and references.
The report/plan shall contain the following sections:
• session case notes;
• overall summary of client progress; case reconceptualization if required,
• analysed with reference to relevant counselling literature / textbook;
• measurement of change;
• SMART goal and plan for future sessions;
• provide relevant literature citations to support your plan; and
• reflections on counselling strengths and challenges; plan for development.
