How do you know if you’re asking the right questions, to elicit the most pertinent information?
As clinicians, you must not only understand your clients’ impairment/disability but also see the world through their eyes.
In this recording, Dr. Carol Westby will explain how information gained through ethnographic interviewing – asking the right questions to the right person in the right way – can enable you to design assessments and interventions to meet your clients’ needs and goals.
You will learn how to conduct an ethnographic interview and analyze the information gained to:
Identify barriers to client’s participation
Encourage responsiveness to the clients’ or families’ perspective
Ethnographic interviews can be used with all clients and their families and are critical when you don’t share their cultural/linguistic background. Video demonstrations are woven throughout the presentation to show the types of questions/interactions.
