Research the definition and purpose of a privileged psychotherapy note. Prepare a privileged note that you would use to document your impressions of therapeutic progress/therapy sessions for your client.
- The privileged note should include items that you would not typically include in a note as part of the clinical record.
- Explain why the items you included in the privileged note would not be included in the client’s progress note.
- Explain whether your preceptor uses privileged notes, and if so, describe the type of information he or she might include. If not, explain why.
