· The first column is for you, the nursing student’s, comments/ questions, and responses. You may want to include the introduction process. It is understandable if the initial conversation is more superficial to establish rapport. You may not want to include all of this but move on to the more focused interaction. Your nonverbal communication is included here.

· Then, the conversation will move to a focus on the client’s feelings, concerns, issues as he/she has identified them. After the introduction, it may be beneficial to establish with the client a short- term goal for the interaction.

· The second column is for the client’s comments, questions, responses. Also, the nonverbal reactions of the client are included in this column.

· The middle column is for you (nursing student) to write what you are thinking or feeling.

· The last two columns are for you (nursing student) to document the technique that you (nursing student) used in that portion of the conversation. If it is a non – therapeutic response, you (nursing student) are to write the response and think of how you (nursing student) could revise to more therapeutic response. You (nursing student) can change any response if you (nursing student) think of how you could have responded differently but, identify and change all non – therapeutic responses.
