Chapter Summary

In this chapter, we have covered the importance of evaluating your progress with your clients. Related to evaluating progress is deciding when to terminate therapy and how to do that effectively. We hope, at this point, that you feel like you have a foundation for working with clients in an individual setting. In the next two chapters, we introduce you to working with two other client types: families and groups. Each of these requires many of the skills you have learned up to this point but also requires some additional skills that focus on interpersonal relationships in a therapeutic setting.
