CASE CONSULTATION AND SUPERVISION: WHAT IS IT?
Please note David's schedule is typically full but if you don't mind being on a waiting list, he'll contact you when he has an opening.
When in a county that does not permit retired expats to engage in any work, volunteer or otherwise, David is available for friendly conversations, informally called "counsel," with friends met on Quora or other media, and never receives personal payment of any kind. Instead, friends are invited to make a donation directly to a local charity he supports.
David provides limited educational hypothetical case discussion for psychologists and other psychotherapists.
Some are early in their careers. Others are established master therapists. Both seek challenge and growth, some in honing basic skills, others in exploring new areas, or simply formulating fresh approaches to challenging cases.
Although this service has been called “supervision,” it is not administrative in any way and simply means looking at hypothetical cases together.
In no way does it suggest that the consultant/supervisor takes on any responsibility for any clinician, client or case: indeed clients and cases are typically presented hypothetically or as composites, with no identifying information.
David prefers regularly scheduled sessions, typically weekly for a period of time, vs. ad-hoc consultations.
David provides these educational conversations free of charge, but requests that users make what they feel is an appropriate donation between $50 USD and $150 USD to a grass-roots charity he supports, for each scheduled 50 minute video session, or extended written consultation. In case of financial hardship, the minimum donation is $35 USD -- no need to explain the hardship.
