Database Trials

Counseling and Psychotherapy Transcripts, Client Narratives, and Reference Works, Volume1 and Volume 2.

This is a "searchable collection containing real transcripts of counseling and therapy sessions and first-person narratives illuminating the experience of mental illness and treatment, as well as reference works to contextualize the primary material. The database contains more than 2,000 session transcripts, 44,000 pages of client narratives, and 25,000 pages of secondary reference material."

At present the volumes are accessed via different platforms so the links are unique for each volume as follows.
