Counselors

Counselors use FEJ as part of their practice to help their patients.

Overview

Counselors are a special type of mental health provider that may focus intently on a single problem area. There are many tools a counselor may use and the more tools the better. By taking a multi-pronged approach to a single issue the client may have a better chance at success.

FamilyeJournal could be an excellent resource for counselors to help their clients. Since sessions typically occur 1-2 times per week, an activity like the eJournal could be helpful in an on-going treatment capacity. Furthermore, FEJ helps involve the family even if their involvement is not directly related to the client's issue. In fact, FEJ may help improve outcomes by showing family support to the client that is purposely not directly related to the issue at-hand.
