This practical handbook prepares professionals for a critical moment in their training: the first time they meet alone with a new client.Knowing how to conduct the first interview is fundamental to the foundation of a trainee's clinical skills, but is often overlooked in professional training. This practical resource will be useful to trainers, supervisors, and teachers in the helping professions--especially those who are working intensely with several interns and want to provide them with basic clinical practice instruction.What colleagues are saying aboutMaking Contact. . ."The discussion points are wonderful." --Dr. David D.
