Practicing your social work skills through a role-play scenario is an essential part of a social work education. This is an opportunity to learn before interacting with vulnerable clients and unintentionally causing harm. Role-play assists you in identifying the areas where you are strong, as well as the areas where you might need improvement.

ENGAGEMENT ROLE-PLAY, PART 1

Practicing your social work skills through a role-play scenario is an essential part of a social work education. This is an opportunity to learn before interacting with vulnerable clients and unintentionally causing harm. Role-play assists you in identifying the areas where you are strong, as well as the areas where you might need improvement.

In this two-part Assignment, you demonstrate skills related to engagement. You are encouraged to practice your engagement skills before recording yourself because practice encourages improvement. However, the video is not expected to be a perfect recording. Real life is not as polished as it may appear in film or television. Stumbling over a word or having to clarify a sentence is a place to demonstrate genuineness and warmth. The goal of recording yourself is to demonstrate current practice skills. You share your video with colleagues in order to have opportunities to learn from one another over the next few weeks. It is now time to record your role-play scenario!

PART 1: Engagement Role-Play Video (4–6 minutes)

Record a role-play video that demonstrates engagement skills. You take on the role of the social worker, while a friend, family member, or colleague takes on the role of the client. Although this is a role-play scenario, you should demonstrate your professionalism in demeanor, appearance, and behavior. Please dress professionally and ensure you have a quiet place to record without interruptions. Your video role-play should include:

· A demonstration of the interaction between you, as the social work intern, and the client based on the scenario you selected that reflects the Engagement step in the Generalist Intervention Model. The scene should include the following:

· A demonstration of effective attending skills

· A discussion of agency services and client expectations

· A decision of whether or not the agency and worker can help

· An offer of agency and worker services to the client

· An orientation for the client to the helping process, including:

· A discussion of confidentiality

· A discussion of a social work intern’s role

To ensure accessibility for your peers, please use the closed caption function available in the Kaltura Media player. Your video will be captioned automatically about an hour after it is uploaded. Be sure to edit the closed caption function to ensure accuracy.
