Everyone should download and read the following four forms. You can print them out if you like, but it's not necessary.
Everyone should download, print, and fill out the following four forms:
If you have had previous outpatient psychotherapists (psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors, etc.), download the following form, print as many copies as you need, and fill them out. Use your judgement in deciding which therapists might be useful for us to talk to. We are generally not going to ask them for written records, but we may want to talk with them briefly on the phone.
If you have ever had a psychiatric hospitalization, download, print, and fill out the following form. (If there have been multiple hospitalizations, please fill out a separate copy for each one.) This will authorize their releasing records about your hospitalization to us.
If you think you may have body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), also download, print, and fill out the following two forms. Note that you will be filling out two different forms of the YBOCS. Try to use the regular YBOCS to record the symptom severity of your OCD concerns that are not BDD-related; and use the BDD-YBOCS to record the symptom severity of your BDD concerns.
If you live far from Austin, or if you live closer but are interested in Intensive Outpatient Treatment, download and read the following two forms. You can print them out if you like, but it's not necessary.
The sample contract is just for your information at this point and does not need to be filled out yet.
