New Clients are required to attend a DC WBC Orientation prior to receiving one-on-one counseling. New clients may register to attend an Orientation several ways to include: during your first one-on-one counseling session, on-site at a DC WBC Orientation workshop, or the Orientation webinar coming soon.
