Part IV: Counseling with Enthusiasm and Style > Rate Your Counseling Skills

Chapter 38. Rate Your Counseling Skills

As you progress toward becoming an effective, successful counselor, it is a good idea to rate yourself after each session. This form is designed for this purpose. If you rate yourself as a 5 in any category, you are saying that further improvement is not possible; if you rate yourself a 3 or below, you are saying improvement is necessary.
