separation/divorce, new relationships, move to a new house/apartment, change of
job, etc.)

Safety

Clinical

Medications
used by the patient (even if the nurse psychotherapist was not the one
prescribing them)

Clinical

Collaboration
with other professionals (i.e., phone consultations with physicians,
psychiatrists, marriage/family therapists, etc.)

Therapist’s
recommendations, including whether the client agreed to the recommendations

Referrals

Termination/issues
that are relevant to the termination process (i.e., client informed of loss of
insurance or refusal of insurance company to pay for continued sessions)

Issues

Information
concerning child abuse, and/or elder or dependent adult abuse, including
documentation as to where the abuse was reported

sure to exclude any information that should not be found in a discoverable
progress note.

Part 2: Privileged
Note

Based on
this week’s readings, prepare a privileged psychotherapy note that you would
use to document your impressions of therapeutic progress/therapy sessions for
your client from the Week 3 Practicum Assignment.

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.
