Assignment 2: Process Recordings
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.
For this Assignment, you will submit a process recording of your field education experiences specific to this week.
The Assignment: (2–4 pages)
- Provide a transcript of what happened during your field education experience, including a dialogue of interaction with a client.
- Explain your interpretation of what occurred in the dialogue, including social work practice or theories, and explain how it might relate to intervention covered this week.
- Describe your reactions and/or any issues related to your interaction with a client during your field education experience.
- Explain how you applied social work practice skills when performing the activities during your process recording.

An explanation of potential challenges for intervention during your field education experience
The potential challenges for intervention during the field education experience is not accessing intervention on an ecosystem perspective. Many of the callers are homeless, suicidal, and or experiencing relapse due to a history of substance abuse. However, as a social worker, we must view interventions on a micro and macro level. The profession of social work examines social problems from an ecosystems perspective, understanding the interplay between micro and macro factors in terms of the development of a social problem. (Garthwait, 2016, p. 88) For example, if a caller needs assitance for suicide, how can we help by providing a intervention on a large- scale for their stability.
An explanation of personal action plans you might take to address intervention in your field education experience
In references to callers that are suicidal we intervene by gathering location and physical appearance, so that active rescue is sent. On the other hand, personal action plans I might take to address intervention in the field experience is to understand the problem. Garthwait (2016) addresses that clients who are experiencing problems firsthand may view them very differently from the way someone else views their problem.( p. 93) Therefore, I must gain the most understanding because it will allow the determination of what resources are needed to be provided and best interventions on a macro level to use.
