A process recording is a detailed written account and analysis of a social work contact. It is one of the most valuable and essential tools for learning the practice of social work.
Writing process recordings is a key element of your field education. It requires you to listen and observe carefully, recall and review your work, and examine the feelings it engenders in you.
Our M.S.W. Process Recording Handbook describes the specific components of a process recording and provides samples of different recording formats.
