Hi, I wondered if you could provide me with a standard form for informed consent for a counselor to audiotape a client. My ACA member number is *******. Thanks for your help. –Amy

Amy, my name is Anthony Centore, and I am the private practice consultant for the ACA.

I was able to find this consent form online, which seems to be EXACTLY what you are looking for. Please understand that neither I or the ACA can warranty this form. It appears to be used by the University of Arkansas, and looks pretty good, actually 🙂

I hope this helps Amy!
