Discussion Unit 6
Getting Down to Details
Assessment and goal setting are the “meat and potatoes” of the professional interview. In addition, assessments help both the professional and the client identify goals to work toward in the client-professional relationship. Once you have read and watched the videos for this unit, answer the following questions in the Discussion:
- What information should an assessment include? Why? How might you go about gathering the information you want? Give specific examples.
- Are there any topics that should be “off limits” in the professional interview? Why or why not?
- How do you set goals for yourself? How would you help a client identify a goal they might want to achieve?
- Why do you think setting goals is important in the helping relationship?
