The initial session is conducted with the parents or adult partners. A history will be taken and preliminary goal setting will be accomplished. Treatment practices, philosophy, provisional plan as well as limitations and risks will be discussed. Recommendations in terms of frequency of appointments, other possible therapies and a provisional diagnosis will be given. Children and adolescents may be evaluated individually to determine the appropriateness of family counseling. Some insurance companies do not reimburse for family counseling.
