For our first session, my clients and I get together for a consultation visit and we set up their goals. I call this the Individual Social Skills Plan, or ISSP. We usually set up about four goals, and we start from there. After the initial consultation, I put a lot of thought into structuring the tools, methods, and environments that I will use to actualize these goals. I am able to tailor the coaching that I do for each individual because of the specificity of the ISSP.
You may ask, what is a typical session like. The interesting thing is that there is nothing typical about my sessions. Everybody’s sessions are so different. I personalize each session to the individual client.
