Week eight and nine are both about how social workers conduct assessments. After we have started building relationships with our clients, and before we can really find ways to support them we have to understand what the real problem is. We will be looking at how we do assessments. We will review examples of screening tools, talking about the DSM-5 and its uses, as well as some discussion around mini-mental status exams. Furthermore, I will show some examples of how I do documentation.
