The purpose of this assignment is to increase your social work and critical thinking skills in conducting an initial assessment. In the assessment phase of social work we gather, organize, and make sense of the information the client has provided. This provides the foundation to develop the contract or treatment plan to initiate addressing the concerns impacting our client. Even though assessment is an ongoing process, we must document this phase. As social workers, we refrain from including labels that stigmatize our clients. It helps to keep in mind to write notes in a manner that would be acceptable and appropriate for the client to read.
