Life Before PDIForm

Personal Data Inventory (PDI) forms are a great way to collect basic information before starting counseling.

If you use PDI forms, you’re probably used to seeing forms like this.

Hurried and incomplete answers, writing in the margins, sometimes difficult to read; then there’s the logistics and timing of sending and receiving the form.

How PDIForm Makes a Difference

PDIForm allows you to send interested counselees to a personal website where they can fill out the form at a convenient time.

Since they won't suffer from writing fatigue, they’ll be much more likely to give thorough and helpful information.

The Result

Once they’re done, you receive an email with a simple, easy-to-read PDF document.

From there you can either print it, or use your favorite PDF editor on your computer or tablet.

it's that easy!
