confidentiality with client after he expressed fear of his alcohol problem being reported to his job. This is considered a cultural competence technique. By listening to John's feelings about being forced by his wife into treatment the social worker was able to gather enough information to find focus points and conversation to make him comfortable. With the collaborative working approach she was able to get him to come to another session and open up more. Collaborating with
the client is extremely important because it gives them control of their process, it makes them feel that what they want is important, they do not feel forced and they decided what goalsto form with just the assistance in completing it. The three planning steps I would take would be prioritizing the needs in which the client decided the importance, specifying objectives and step actions to clearly inform the clients of our plan to reach their goals and contract so that they understand the seriousness and take accountability for their selective goals. The behavior skill I would showcase would be maintaining collaborative relationship with the client and providing feedback to the clients concerns to show them that I care and that I am understanding of their needs and concerns.Plummer,S.-B., Makris, S., & Brocksen S.

I learned a valuable lesson reading your post. Collaboration is key to a successful working relationships with a client. Through the steps of the GIM that you mentioned a working bond can be formed between client and social worker (Kirst-Ashman & Hull, 2014). This collaborative working approach you mentioned is essential to a client trusting you. Gathering information is a delicate matter, it involves ensuring your client that confidentiality is your highest priority. Telling your client about the laws that govern privacy, such as HIPPA can go a long way with establishing a trusting issue. I think it's essentialthat your client know what their rights are, and that you respect them.
