Week 1 Discussion

Scenario: 16-year-old white pregnant teenager living in an inner-city neighborhood
The client interview is an essential clinical skill that helps establish trust contributing to
quality care. Ball, Dains, Flynn, Solomon and Stewart (2015) support the process of interviewing
a client in developing the therapeutic relationship and understanding a client’s unique
perspective allowing the provider to disregard assumptions that could negatively impact care.
Fortin, Dwamena, Frankel, and Smith (2013) recommend beginning the interview with a process
of “nonfocusing” (p. 40) where the provider asks a general open-ended question and allows the
client to speak freely and observe non-verbal communication before further communication. In
the case of the 16-year-old, this could be useful in helping to understand how the client feels
about the pregnancy.
