Sade Boss RE: Discussion - Week 10 In the field of social work, terminating services with our clients can be a rewarding experience with the understanding that our clients have met their goals and are capable of functioning at their top performance. Kirst-Ashman and Hull (2018) illustrate the process of adequately terminating a client and worker relationship into six steps. The first step is somewhat obvious; it is determining the time of termination. Ideally, when working with a client, the social worker with the client assess the client's progress, determines if the goals set for the client have been completed. Once that has been established, the process of termination begins. Within the six steps, Kirst-Ashman and Hull (2018) describe the social worker evaluating the client's completion of goals, and whether the client was satisfied with the care they received under their instruction or at the agency. By doing this, it allows the social worker and client time to confirm that termination is appropriate, that the client's needs have been met, and the client can acknowledge and appreciate their growth (Kirst-Ashman and Hull, 2019). Once the social worker and client establish all of that, all the criteria and needs are completed the social worker will work with the client to establish rituals and aftercare that would help the client manage their progress outside of their program (Kirst-Ashman and Hull, 2019).
