Having clear goals has been found to keep clients more engaged in therapy, and improve outcome measures at the end of treatment. Our Goal Planning worksheet is designed to help you accomplish this goal by providing a template for clients to generate short and long-term goals.
This worksheet asks clients to come up with three goals: One for the next month, year, and five years. Next, they will identify potential obstacles, and strengths they can use to overcome them. This activity works well as a bonding exercise for new groups, or to get a client thinking about what they would like to work toward during the course of therapy.
