Contact the person you wish to interview. You can provide a copy of the questions prior to the interview.
● The person has a choice in whether or not to agree to be interviewed as well as agreeing to be recorded (if you so choose to record the interview). Ask well in advance of the assignment due date and please get verbal informed consent from the person to conduct the interview and to be recorded, if you so choose to record.
● Have a semi-structured interview guide ready – prepare some questions and some probes in case you want more information.
● Conduct the interview in a safe space – please make sure the person whom you are interviewing feels comfortable with the set-up, that they feel safe to talk, and make sure this is arranged well in advance. Make sure the person whom you are interviewing as the opportunity to say how they prefer to be interviewed.
● Please make sure that they know their interview will be confidential. This includes using a pseudonym in your write-up and not providing too many demographic details that would disclose who this person is – only I will be reading this assignment.
● Before the interview, do some initial research on the “difference” you have selected. This will help you develop some questions and think
about what you would like to learn about further. Think about cultural humility and what this may mean in an interview and use your social work skills related to interpersonal communication and active listening.
Some Tips on What to Say to the Individual
● Explain this interview is for a class
● Tell them they can completely stop the interview at any time, they can ask for a pause/break, and they do nothave to answer any questions that make them uncomfortable. Their refusal should be respected.
1. Why did you choose this person?
2. What is their “difference” compared to yours?
3. What steps did you take to prepare for the interview/develop your questions? How did you inform your
4. How did you help in creating a safe space? Were there any specific things that needed to be considered?
5. What was easy/difficult about the interview? What made you feel uncomfortable or awkward?
This should all be through the use of concrete and specific examples.
1. What are some of the things you learned about history, traditions, beliefs, values and lived experiences?
2. What surprised you or challenged your prior belief systems?
3. What is something you learned that you think would be critical to know as a social worker that could inform your practice?
4. What did you learn about yourself (think about your own self-reflection piece) –Were there similarities in your worldview or lived experiences? Did you notice any personal biases/assumptions?
5. Where do you think you have to grow/develop as a social worker? What are some things you want to learn more about? What did it teach you about cross-cultural communication?
1. Reflect on the experience as a whole and discuss ways in which to make micro and macro level changes that may inform social justice reform and facilitate cross-cultural communication. How do we foster empathy, cultural humility, and listening skills?
2. In thinking about these reflections, use concrete examples on ways in which you hoped the interview went better or was easier. Your own self-growth.
3. Overall take away from this assignment (2-3 sentences)
Format: 4-6 pages double spaced. APA style. Writing is easy to read, well-organized and uses professional language. There are subheadings where appropriate.
Some example questions:
1. How is your “social identity” evident in your life? What are some of the ways in which it plays a role in aspects of your daily living?
2. Is your “social identity” something you think about on a daily basis? How and in what ways does it shape your experiences? Are there places/institutions in which it may be more apparent?
3. Do you see any benefits/privileges in your life because of your “social identity?”
4. What are some ways in which you feel your “social identity” has disproportionately impacted you? How has it affected your learning? Your social experiences? Your opportunities for growth and development?
5. When did you first become attuned to your “social identity”?
6. If you could tell others one thing in order to facilitate and foster cross-cultural communication, what would it be?
