Date: Tue, 28 May 1996 09:58:20 -0400 From: Wayne Glowka Subject: Client "Client" is also the term used by psychological counselors for the people that come to see them for professional help. Use of the word seems to be an attempt to be non-judgmental about people with different kinds of psychological needs. Counselors want people in general to know that one may seek counseling without having a serious disorder or problem. Ideally, the services they provide can be summarized in counseling terms as "personal development."
