my internship is with Jasmine Trangucci-clinical social worker in private practice
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):
- 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 evaluation 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.

Today I met with the client and the client expressed that she was very depressed and was experiencing severe mood swings. The client informed me that last month she increased her Lexapro medication to 20 mg which was done by her last psychiatrist. At the present time the client does not have a psychiatrist because once a year the psychiatrist rotate. The client is very frustrated and has been dealing with depression from lack of sleep.
The client also expressed that she has been very dehydrated lately as she thinks her lithium 1200 mg medication is causing her to be dehydrated. Client family is very concerned that it might be a side effect from the lithium medication. And client expressed to me that her father wanted her to move out but she has no place to go. She became very emotional and felt that her dad doesn’t love her. The client doesn’t have a father-daughter relationship with her dad. The client has not been happy for a long time and doesn’t know what it’s like to be happy.
