Creating a Treatment Plan

Recently, in my supervision group we reviewed the way that an Adlerian would make a treatment plan. Here is the outline for such:

1. Gather information

2. Follow the sections of the evaluation: a. Reason for referral b. Current symptoms c. History of the concerns d. Impairments in functioning

e. Counseling history f. Risk and Safety Concerns

g. Medication history h. Substance use history i. Family background

j. Mental status k. Diagnosis l. Recommendations


3. Identify possible goals

4. Identify possible interventions

5. Discuss goals with the client

6. Make goals SMART: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Timely

7. Counselor and Client sign treatment plan

8. Review and revise goals each session with Client
