I choose to discuss the case study of Abdel, a 40-year old male who resettled as refugee in the United State (Plummer, Makris, & Brocksen, 2014). To complete a proper assessment for Abel I would need to be aware of how to integrate cultural competence prior to meeting him (Kirst-Ashman & Hull, 2018). “Social work competence is the ability to integrate and apply social work knowledge, values, and skills to practice situations in a purposeful, intentional, and professional manner to promote human and community well-being” (CSWE, 2015). As a social work the first step prior before the assessment is engagement. Initiating a relationship with the client while using verbal and nonverbal skills to establish rapport and introduce yourself and your role (Kirst-Ashman & Hull, 2018).When assessing from a Micro practice perspective to establish a good worker-client relationship I would need to make the client feel relax to communicate about what’s going on with him and how we can activate a goal plan to solve his problem (Kirst- Ashman & Hull, 2018).
