Third party prompts meeting

Typical examples of such situations are when a parent wants to make an appointment for their adolescent son; spouse wants to make an appointment for wife or husband, or adult children are trying to arrange a meeting for their elder parents. In all these cases it is not clear if the call was made at the request of the subject of appeal or by the will of the caller towards the person for which he summons the meeting, that at best he is ready to “go with it.” The difference can be detected easily if you ask the caller if the person which reference was made about him knows and wants to see the therapist

One way to overcome the possibility that the treatment will go towards an unwanted direction, is to ask the caller to come together with the subject of the appeal, on the grounds, that it can promote the entire treatment. Other times, you can ask the caller to come by himself to give the necessary background about the person for whom he asked the meeting.  In this way the caller can be involved immediately in the treatment process, and if it turns out the potential client is not “sweating”, then you can continue working with the one who called at first
