Social Work Skills

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,

TO PREPARE

Choose a scenario from the list below. Use this scenario to establish the client

system for the role-play. That is, the client in the role-play takes on the role

identified in the scenario.

Client Sara, age 26, is a working mother of three who relies on child support

payments. Child support payments have not been paid, and she is at risk of losing

her job. She is in a tough spot, and she is coming to you for support.

Client Judy, age 76, is being admitted to an inpatient hospice care center. Her son

and grandson are her only family. As a social worker for this family, you must help
