Homework: Interview Presentation

How you present yourself to others is an important part of being a social worker. Being able to present yourself in an open, caring, and professional manner helps with building rapport and influences your clients` willingness to share their experiences. You also must be skilled at interacting with clients who are different from you.

Interviewing skills are also very important, as you have seen, and social workers must be mindful of how to conduct an interview in a culturally competent and culturally sensitive manner.

In this Homework, you have an opportunity to practice your engagement and assessment skills. You conduct an interview with an individual from a different culture than your own to learn their perspective about culture and gender. The goal is for you to explore the cultural norms within that ethnic or cultural group.

To Prepare

A. Identify an interview subject from a culture other than your own.
B. Download the Interview Presentation: Questions handout from the Learning Resources.(FIND IN THE ATTACHMENTS)
C. Ask your interview subject the questions found in the Interview Presentation handout.
D. Be sure to record the interview (with the participant`s permission) and/or take good notes.

You will not submit the interview itself. Rather, you will create a presentation about the interview.

Reflect on interviewing the subject, the skills you used, your reaction to the activity, and what you learned that you can apply in future work.

Develop PowerPoint slides about your interview. Then, record the PowerPoint presentation using Kaltura. Your video should be 4-5 minutes.

Submit a recorded PowerPoint (PPT) presentation about your interview with a person from a different culture than your own. Your presentation should include 8 to 10 slides and should be 4 to 5 minutes in recorded length.

In the recorded presentation, address the following:

Question A. Identify the basic background information of the interviewee.

Question B. Provide a summary of what you learned about the individual when conducting this interview.

Question C. Identify the skills you used to address the differences between you and the interview subject.

Question D. Describe your reaction to this activity.

Question E. Reflect on these reactions and explain why you believe you may have experienced these thoughts and feelings.

Question F. Describe what you learned and explain which additional social work skills you could apply or could have applied when working with this individual.
