Collaborative documentation is a relatively new approach to the way in which counselors create their clinical documentation.  Simply put, the clinician “collaborates” with the client when it comes time to write the progress note.  However, there are some considerations counselors need to give to this mode of writing progress notes.  Having an organized, systematic approach will also help when engaging in collaborative documentation.  This webinar will provide an overview of collaborative documentation, how to approach this style of notetaking with clients, and the type of format in counselors can consider using when writing collaborative progress notes.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand what collaborative documentation is
  2. Assess when and how to use collaborative documentation with clients
  3. Examine the utility of collaborative documentation
  4. Learn a new method for taking progress notes that works well with collaborative documentation
