    When a child, adult or a couple is seeing a therapist or psychologist every week, every other week or monthly, how important is homework?

    If the therapist says she does not believe in homework, is that reason enough to look for another therapist?

    If the therapist and the client do not come up with things for the client to try or track till the next appointment, how would progress be measured over the weeks and months?

    Are there situations where the in-session exercise and work are sufficient and there is no need for homework outside the appointments?

    Hi @Rihana,
    I don't know which therapist are you talking about?
    I was going to a physical therapy sessions for my knees. I was going for past 4 and a half months. I stopped going since lockdown. I am not sure if you are referring to PT, ST , OT.

    gk, I was referring to therapists and psychologists (mental health professionals). But by coincidence, I also need to see a physical therapist for my knees and check about good height etc adjustment for exercise bike and the pedal cleats, and general healthy knee exercises.

    Most of the PT clinics are either closed or they have only tele visits. My PT office is currently open. They closed for about 15 days. But i didn't get an appointment yet. My PT told me to do the home exercises for now.
