PEER 1: Candise Mitchell

It is easy to look at someone and base judgement on the perception they display to the world. However, judgement is not an assessment. An assessment is conducted by intermixing their outer display with their opinions, thoughts, background, and current lifestyle. Therefore, it is beneficial to use the humanistic approach when engaging with others. Social work is a profession strongly anchored in Western humanistic values emphasizing the worth, autonomy, and right to self-determination of the clients (Savaya & Gardner, 2012). Social workers should practice using humanistic assessment skills to provide non-judgmental observations that help those who come into our services. This has been demonstrated within my field placement at Grace Abounds Counseling. Client referrals do not give a clear picture regarding the needs of those who come into the organization. Often therapist (interns) conduct assessment intakes that ask questions as far as the grandparent’s mental health history. This is not to be invasive but rather demonstrates the use of the humanistic approach by creating dialogue to identifying connecting factors towards the client’s physical or mental health as well as gives them a chance to reflect on their individual need more as well. People are often unaware of the values that underlie and guide their behaviors and using the humanistic approach in conversation is key to an effective and informed assessment (Savaya & Gardner, 2012).
