Stop stressing about your documentation.
You want your notes and documentation to be accurate, but you also don’t want to spend your precious hours typing away at the computer trying to fit in what happened with the kitchen, dinosaurs, the barn, and the sand - all in one session.
Before you know it you have a transcript of the session sitting in your DAP form.
In a documentation world that can feel like goldilocks with too much or not enough, you want to get the "just right” of play therapy documentation.
You just want to know exactly what to say and how to say it.
Because truth? Documentation shouldn't be this hard.
And, it's not your fault. Most graduate schools don’t teach what diagnostic assessments, goal setting, and progress notes look like in the real world. What insurance companies and state laws and statutes actually require. AND they definitely didn’t teach you what it means to translate the world of play therapy into a neatly wrapped note.
If this sounds like you - it's time to get off the struggle bus.
You need the tools to make documentation a breeze.
You need the specific templates, cheat sheets, and guides to help you understand exactly what needs to be in your documentation for play therapy sessions - from the assessment, to treatment planning, and progress notes!
So, what if documentation was the easiest part of your day?
Seriously. You work so hard to manage navigating tantrums, play themes, new interventions, and being arrested for the 237th time. Putting all of that into words should be a piece of cake (wooden of course, from your playroom kitchen.)
