Welfare Intake Interviews – Jennifer Session One Initial Interview


hi Jennifer my name’s Sarah and I’m gonna be your case managers so
we working together for a while and today what I’d like to do is have a
chance to go through the forms that you turned in
and then I have here take a look at them and start working on
a plan on how things are going to look for
you and me and working together so where I kinda like to start is if you
could tell me a little bit more about how things are for you right now well on
my husband and I are getting a divorce so he’s moved out and it’s just me and
my two kids and he says he’s gonna pay rent a helping
hand but I I can’t really trust him and so I’ll I want to get a job because my kids are in school and I think I’ll
be bored just sitting around all day yeah yet linden certainly I know you have some work history lemme
on and are you thinkin tell me what you’re thinking about work
what would what would be interesting for you: I’m and really like working with kids am like volunteering
at my kids school but the I I have experience doing cash hearings to and like retail take I sold lottery tickets in income so maybe something different something with people yeah okay so we
can take a look at that and arm I’m seen here too on that you had you mark that there’s
some medical issues going on send problems with headaches and stomach
Anderson how it was that connected to you’re like
oh from your last job and I’m wondering how the medical stuff fits into that no it didn’t it didn’t
really you the they said it was my attitude home
welcome so do you think that your health issues do they get in your way another I mean
how those headaches affect you on well they just seem to come after I am like hanging out with my
friends a lot so a then it’s like the next day and I
think maybe it’s just a loud music for arena me I don’t think they’re keeping from
working but I probably wouldn’t be as cheery
yeah that added something sometimes it
depends on customer service your son is yet to be so perky yeah kids tough someone doing a little bit
the when you go out with your friends is
there alcohol involved a mean during summer yeah I just a couple
couple beers mmm okay so that’s not the cause a headache
so the timing no okay alright well one of the reasons
I ask is I’m we do have one other things we like
to do for our clients is given an opportunity to go to a wellness day
where there’s a couple different kinds the screens so if people have I’m an opportunity to
talk about mental health issues drug and alcohol
issues I am a counselor then going to open and we can talk about that okay so you are you’re seeing a
therapist yes all excellent i think thats that’s it a
really accomplish when I think these days to come to figure out how to
navigate the system on good for you for certain up so it was
important because my kids go with me once a month and then I go by myself
month hawking so how’s that been so far okay you know when kids are still young so is just trying to get them to understand
what’s going on when her I’m that can make such a difference in
how they experience this whole thing so I think it’s great that you’re doing
them and I really want to encourage you to
continue with our so we could make that party your plan if you’d like to the senior therapist and continuing with
that and arm so let’s talk about are creating a plan that so the mental
health will be part about are maybe talking to one another the our staff we have folks here who helped
work on peoples resumes maybe some interviewing skills in and
you since you’re interested in getting back to work maybe we’ll job search will be part of
that plan in the beginning right yeah okay excellent okay well thats I’m figure out sometimes
