Fall 2023 SOWK 486w Week 08: Assessments

A presentation at Heritage University at CBC Week 08 in in Pasco, WA 99301, USA by Jacob Campbell

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