Synopsis

The First Helping Interview Engaging the Client and Building Trust by Sara F. Fine, Paul H. Glasser

This highly practical guide for both experienced and novice professionals and students reveals the steps involved in the crucial first meeting with a client. The authors approach the task of an initial interview by providing an overview of the therapeutic process and what to expect from clients. The book also explores the practical basics of therapy - counsellor-client roles, physical settings, communication dynamics, assessment and diagnosis, record-keeping, goals and contracts and trust-building. Individual chapters discuss specialist topics such as working with couples and families, the role of culture and ethnicity, when and how to refer clients with serious problems, and legal and ethical issues.
