A Format for Individual Psychotherapy Session Notes

A Format for Individual Psychotherapy Session Notes


This article describes a format for individual case notes. The Individual Psychotherapy Session Note (IPSN) form was designed to focus the clinician's attention on certain relevant aspects of the psychotherapy process and to facilitate the formulation of inferences and hypotheses on the basis of clinical data. It also encourages the therapist to examine his or her own behavior in sessions as well as to observe the therapist-client interaction. The form is designed to be used flexibly, in accordance with the practitioner's needs at different points during therapy. The implications of the IPSN form for training and supervision are also discussed.
