Mock Interview and Documentation
Conduct a 20-minute informal interview with an adult family member, peer, or co-worker practicing the introduction and opening phase of a clinical interview. Request that the individual address issues related to career, education, relationships, or time management. In 375–500 words, include the following in your report:
- An overview of interview preparation (for example, initial contact, ethical and cultural considerations, physical setting, and so on).
- A summary of interviewer tasks and technical approaches for the introduction and opening phase. Incorporate the Clinical Interviewing text and a minimum of one academic research article in this section.
- Documentation of the clinical session applying the SOAP format.
- A self-evaluation of the applied interviewer tasks and the use of nondirective interviewing during the introduction and opening phase.
