First Encounter (~ 5 minutes)

Instructions to student (done prior to session): "This is not an interview. This is an opportunity for the two of you to get to know each other. Just converse as you would with anyone you are meeting for the first time. But please — this is very important — be sure to allow time for your partner to initiate topics, even if this ends up creating some long pauses."

Preamble: "I'd like you to meet one of my students.* I don't think you've met her/him before. This is a chance for you to get to know each other. This is not an interview, so s/he doesn’t have a list of questions to ask you. See what you can get to know about her/him."

*(If a student clinician is administering the protocol, say: "I'd like you to meet another student here.")
