demonstrate the first stage of the GIM process

Project: Draft of Client System Role Play Script

For the final project, you will demonstrate the first stage of the GIM process: Engagement. In a 5-minute role-play, you will not be able to adequately demonstrate the entire GIM model and, therefore, you are only expected to provide a brief segment of one of the stages. For this role-play, you will play a social work intern conducting a routine client intake at a fictional agency of your choice.

The first step is to present a general idea for the video role-play. This step is crucial in order to receive feedback before going further so that your project does not become unwieldy or too difficult to produce. This is also a good time to start asking friends and associates to play the role of your client. You may role-play an interview with a child as the client, but the actual actor needs to be an adult.

Assignment Client System Role Play Script:

Using the Role Play Script Template provided in the week 5 resources, provide a description of the role-play and a draft of your script. Based on instructor feedback, you will further develop the script and submit this document as PART B of the Week 9 project.
