Part II Instructions: Role-Play Self-Evaluation

Self-Evaluation Guide

Please address the following four areas in your self-evaluation. Please be concise in your response. Your reflection paper should not exceed 2,000 words. Clips should be created to demonstrate the skill you are addressing in your reflection.

1. Nonverbal Communications

Please reflect on how you “looked” as an interviewer, such as to what extent or in what ways you presented yourself as a warm and welcoming professional and showed your interest in the person. Identify effective uses of nonverbal communications on your part, and the nonverbal aspects that you would like to see improvement on in the future. Please feel free to use clips as illustrations.

2. Empathic Responding

Please identify two clips showing your use of empathic responding, preferably representing two different levels of empathic responses. For both clips, first, indicate the level of your response and justify your rating. Second, discuss how you came to that response during the interview and the effect of your response on the flow and/or the direction of the interview in each case.

3. Question Formulation

Please select two examples of question formulation in your interview. These can be either open-ended or close-ended questions. Discuss how well these questions facilitated the development of the interview. If they were effective in moving the interview along, discuss how they achieved it. If not, discuss how you might


formulate the questions differently.

4. Overall Evaluation. All questions must be answered:

a) What were two substantive questions that you had about the client’s situation as you prepared

for this interview?

b) How effective you were in engaging the client in the first minutes of the interview? Explain.

d) How would you plan to monitor progress toward identified goals?

g) What are two substantive or process questions you have for your supervisor with this case?

in a similar situation?
