This five-part video series and companion discussion guide can be used by a trainer to conduct a facilitated discussion among a group of staff, or by an individual who would like to see a demonstration of effective client-centered counseling. Three video scenarios illustrate the decision-making process when a patient receives a positive pregnancy test result. Following each scenario, experts analyze the counseling and offer commentary.

UPDATE: Per the 2021 Title X Regulations, all clients must be offered the opportunity to be provided information and counseling regarding each of the following options: prenatal care and delivery; infant care, foster care, or adoption; and pregnancy termination. If requested to provide such information and counseling, provide neutral, factual information and nondirective counseling on each of the options, and, referral upon request, except with respect to any option(s) about which the pregnant client indicates they do not wish to receive such information and counseling.
