Your Personal Psychotherapy Notes (Hint: These Are NOT Part of the Client’s Medical Record)

PSYBooks does not store Psychotherapy Notes in the same way it stores notes that are part of the client’s medical record. Psychotherapy notes are meant to be places for you to record your personal thoughts or ideas about a client so they are stored separately. There is one note type in PSYBooks that is always in the Psychotherapy note category and four others that you can designate as Psychotherapy or Medical Record notes:

Can be in Medical Record > Clinical or Psychotherapy categories (you choose):

  • Add/Edit Client
  • Add/Edit Session
  • Add/Edit Client Family
  • Add/Edit Client Medication

Always in the Psychotherapy category

  • Add/Edit Open-Ended
