Obviously DT involves a lot of informal 'counselling', whether it is a group activity or one-on-one. But does anyone promote personal counselling as being a recognized service, is it a formal process or just visits etc. I am a DT but not a professional counselor, even though my job requires a constant need for those services

I record it as 1:1 emotional support. Sometimes residents just need someone to listen to them in an unhurried fashion. It promotes trust and may also serve as a way to encourage participation.
