Social work interviews are purposeful conversations between practitioners and clients designed to facilitate cooperative working relationships by focusing on needs, wants, problems, resources, and solutions. They include attention to both verbal and nonverbal expression (listening, responding, body positioning, facial expressions, and gestures). Skills utilized are also influenced by setting and purpose. (Bibliographies, 2015) Preparing for this interview with a client who was 59 years old and having problems coping with her very young daughter I had to think about the comfort of the environment that I was preparing the interview. I had to do this in order to make her want to open up to me in the right way.

I used this to my advantage by considering about learning opportunities within my practice area. The best placement experiences I had when I was a student was when my ‘mentor’ (a willing registered nurse) was well prepared and knowledgeable, that would enhance my learning. A self-assessment exercise was used to examine my strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats to mentoring (see Appendix 1). Mentors use the results to identify priorities for action (Price, 2004). The main aim of SWOT analyses is to empower mentors by focusing on strengths as a motivational
The social worker could help the couple weigh pros and cons, in attempt to promote self-determination, another component of the NASW Code of Ethics (n.d.). Using MI, the social worker would continue with a series of open-ended questions, reflections and summarizations to explore the client’s ambivalence (Phillips et al., 2012). The overall goal of the social worker would be to assert equal curiosity about both Mika and Joe. Diller (2007) suggests the session should end with a discussion regarding a treatment plan. As the relationship builds, EFT (in conjunction with MI) could be a good intervention, since infertility manifests as a de facto “attachment injury” (Wiebe & Johnson, 2016, p.

In the final chapters of the novel, Jane acquires everything she ever wished for - a social class, a family and the ability to be equal to Mr. Rochester. The novel Jane Eyre is considered Bildungsroman, because, the reader is able to see Jane achieving her goals by learning, maturing, and growing. Throughout the various struggles she had to face, from the Red Room to almost starving to death, Jane learned that sometimes, especially in life and death situations, it is crucial to bend principles, show gratitude and learn self-restraint. Jane’s journey from Gateshead to her marriage was, also, a journey of Jane’s moral and social development. Unlike Jane, Huck wants to leave the society he lives in.
By doing this, I can plan the care for my patients based on their proprieties and commit to them without forgetting anything, as I tend to forget tasks with higher patient loads if they aren’t written down. Another strength I have is leadership. I like taking a leadership role on my unit by delegating appropriate tasks to the healthcare team in order to ensure all the needs of my patients and skills are completed by the end of my shift. Another quality I possess that I think is a strength in nursing is that I love to teach and adapt to my patient’s learning styles based on their priority needs. I think teaching is an essential part of nursing because you find ways of somehow passing on essential knowledge needed by your patients in order to treat, ease, prevent and manage certain disease processes.

Mrs. Timberlyn actually took the time to show the class how to solve the problems step by step. She would always stay after and give assistance when a student needed it.
