A journalist wishes to have anti-smoking treatment, and wants to then write about her experience of the treatment. She has asked if she can record the treatment session. What’s your opinion?
As to recording the session; you have to say no.
Her experience of the treatment and, I assume, the outcome, is what she is interested in writing about; she does not need to remember, know, understand or refer to the techniques you use, nor does she need to have a verbatim report of all that was said by you to enable her to stop smoking.
Perhaps if you explained things to her in a different way, she’d understand – this is the sort of analogy I have used to great success in such situations (see below).
