Note TakingBy Dr. Richard Boyum
Counseling is basically a cognitive process. In a session many good things often happen. As counselors we know that the more ways an individual accesses material, the more likely they are going to remember and recall it. I suggest to a client that they use a note-card during the session, to write down relevant thoughts or ideas that really get their attention. They then are to review these ideas as part of their homework assignment after the session. Clients report utilizing significantly more material that occurred from one session to the next.
