In the social work field work practice, communication skills are important for receiving the inputs from your client. Your effective communication skill will be helpful to you and your client for understanding the things clearly.
Before starting the conversion, it is necessary to do some home work. It will be good if you can find out the likes and dislikes of your client so that you can talk on the topics that your client likes. For making the things interesting, ask some general questions about his life. Do not do long interview sessions as it can bring boredom.
Active listening is also necessary so that you can catch the every word your client told. Use the local language and do not use difficult words in the conversion.
In the first meeting, try to establish professional relationships.
