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.
The Assignment (2–4 pages): (LGBTQ+ community center, this session was the last session which ended in termination due to the field experience ending). 

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.
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.1

Client Information/ Presenting Issue

Client is a 16-year-old Hispanic and African American male from Jacksonville, Fl. He lives with his mother and has a younger sister. His step father and mother are divorcing. The daughter is the step father’s child and will be living with him, while client stays with his mother. He joined the dentention center due to charges of substance use/diagnosis/ possession and theft. I joined therapist, Mr. Sanchez in an individual session to follow up on a suicide precaution assesment. Right now Client is on a one to one precaution where staff signs off that he is okay every 30 minutes. Mr. Sanchez is meeting with him to see if he needs to be taken off or continue to be watched. During this session the client displayed symptoms of depression over the choices that he has made in the past. He is afraid that his step father doesn’t love him any more due to these choices and the present circumstances at home. Also during the session he switched his answer when asked if he continued to have thoughts of suicide. His appearance showed that he was either having a rough morning or a rough night. His eyes were red. Not the eyeballs, but his skin. This could possibly happen due to crying, rubbing, or lack of sleep. After analysing his responses and appearance, I believe that is was necessary to continue to keep a watchful eye on him.

Client: (Smirks) I’m straight.

Therapist: Are you still thinking of harming yourself?

Client: Yes

Therapist: Why are you wanting to harm yourself?

Client: My dad doesn’t love me anymore.

His mouth is shaking. I hope he doesn’t cry because my eyes are getting watery just watching him.

Intern: The word “love” is an action word. Has your dad done anything to show you that he doesn’t love you?

Client: No. I guess not.
