Assignment 2: Application: Process Recordings

A process recording is a written tool field education experience students, field instructors, and faculty use 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.
For this Assignment, you will submit a process recording of your field education experiences specific to this week.

My process Recording in on a 21 caucasian female
Today I met with the client and she apologized for missing the last session.   The client informed me that she completed her resume.    During the session the client informed me that her sister got a job staples the client was a little bit jealous because her sister was able to obtain a job for her she also expressed to me that she got a new psychiatrist she will be see her for the first time in August she also informed me that she might change her medication to something different when she sees a psychiatrist. According to the client the medication that she’s on Lexapro 20 mg and lithium 1200 mg it’s not strong enough for her. The client has a fear that about getting a job she’s afraid that she might not be able to perform at the standards that the job expects her to perform. The client also has anxiety issues. I was about to explain to the client that on the first day of the job you are still learning what the job is about so no one is grading your performance. The client became very emotional and ended the session.
