Description

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
  • Convey respect
  • Promote reciprocity
  • 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.
