It is considered a basic standard of good ethical practice to consult one’s professional peers when confronted with clients who challenge you, exhaust you, and/or cause you to feel dread. In any situation where you realize you may have lost perspective, it is wise to get an impartial consultation. Consultations may be sought in peer supervision groups, in what the medical profession refers to as “curbside consultations” (catching a colleague in between clients at the office, for example), or in a more formal supervision arrangement with a senior colleague. Caution always should be taken to only give essential information when getting a consultation, avoiding unnecessary identifying information such as names or physical descriptions. Documenting in the client record that you sought consultation on a challenging client, however, demonstrates for the record that you were practicing within the highest ethical standards of your profession.
