Discussions are fundamental to shared learning, so please be sure to participate early and often!
After you have completed the Reading, and without reviewing your classmate's responses, post your initial response to the following Discussion. Your post should be at least 150-200 words in length and should extend the discussion of the group supported by your course materials and/or other appropriate resources.
After you have submitted your initial post, take time to review your classmates' responses and to respond specifically and substantially to at least two of them. Refer to the Discussion Rubric in your Syllabus for specific grading explanation.

Getting Down to Details
Assessment and goal setting are the "meat and potatoes" of the professional interview. In addition, assessments help both the professional and the client identify goals to work toward in the client-professional relationship. Once you have read and watched the videos for this unit, answer the following questions in the Discussion:
• What information should an assessment include? Why? How might you go about gathering the information you want? Give specific examples.
• Are there any topics that should be "off limits" in the professional interview? Why or why not?
• How do you set goals for yourself? How would you help a client identify a goal they might want to achieve?
• Why do you think setting goals is important in the helping relationship?
