Furthermore, information is collected in regard to physical development and possible somatic illness, mental development, social skills as wells as hobbies and leisurely activities.

Past difficulties and problems are elucidated and the current situation is investigated: A detailed interview about current problems and symptoms, their onset, intensity and occurrence is performed. Likewise, possible resources and situations in which problems are non-present are assessed.

During this initial meeting, possible psychological tests are discussed, and any other relevant case files that may have been prepared by the municipal authorities such as PPR, hospitals, clinics, etc. are reviewed. It is beneficial to bring any such relevant files or information from other entities along for the initial session. Likewise, the parents or client should ideally fill out and bring our standard form sent to you upon booking with PJK.
