Process Recordings Assignments | Online Homework Help
A process recording is a written tool used by field education experience students, field instructors, and faculty to examine the dynamics of social work interactions in time. Process recordings can help in developing and refining interviewing and intervention skills. By conceptualizing and organizing ongoing activities with social work clients, you are able to clarify the purpose of interviews and interventions, identify personal and professional strengths and weaknesses, and improve self-awareness. The process recording is also a useful tool in exploring the interpersonal dynamics and values operating between you and the client system through an analysis of filtering the process used in recording a session.

of that time has been spent couch surfing between the homes of friends. He is involved with the juvenile justice system and is
currently on probation stemming from an altercation with his step-father. John Doe’s mother and step-father highly disapprove of his
