Homework Assignment for Module Five

Practice Interview Paper

For this assignment you will interview a volunteer for a minimum of 15-30 minutes. Your volunteer must be an adult aged 21 or older. They must give you their permission to participate in the interview and you must explain to them that you will be using the content of the interview in your paper for this class. You will indicate that you have obtained permission and informed them about the purpose in your paper.

Have your volunteer client think of a problem, concern or issue that they feel strongly about. It should be something that they feel strongly enough about that they can speak easily for 15-30 minutes. Please make sure it is not a serious problem or issue of a deeply personal nature. This should be something that you as a student are equipped to listen to and ask a few clarifying questions about.

Once your volunteer has fully described his or her problem, use the skills related to clarification, assessing motivation and readiness, establishing goals and taking action, and establishing goals to help your client identify a plan. You may not get to all of these in the course of your single interview, but try to get to as many as is reasonably possible. (Remember, this is a client-driven process and you are to facilitate, not tell the client what to do or offer advice – even if they directly ask you to do so.)

You will be recording (in writing) information regarding your interview, your reaction and your volunteer’s reaction to the process. You will provide some basic demographic data but no identifying information (i.e. name, address, and so on) should be used in your paper.

Use the checklist provided on Blackboard. You will submit the completed checklist along with your summary paper. You are welcome to handwrite information on this form and scan a copy but you are also welcome to type into the form and attach a copy of the completed Word document.

Your paper and the checklist form must both be uploaded to Blackboard by the due date listed on your course schedule.

Complete your paper using the following outline:
