This meeting is a therapeutic, clinically facilitated accountability meeting. It creates opportunities for clients to gains skills in becoming accountable to self and others, practice boundaried and authentic communication, recognize feelings, take healthy risks, practice honesty and vulnerability and learn to respect others realities.
