Tanya is a 10-year-old Hispanic, female who was referred by her teacher to meet with the School Social Worker. Tanya’s teacher reported that Tanya often plays by herself at recess and lunch and always seems nervous around the other children in her classroom. Tanya is reserved and feels anxious about meeting with the Social Worker.
Using the readings and the above vignette, please identify 2-3 engagement/assessment techniques you could apply to your initial meeting with Tanya. Please consider any cultural considerations.
