One of the most important aspects of the job of an APS Professional is meeting with clients. APS Professionals are highly skilled at quickly establishing rapport with clients and asking investigative questions. During an investigation, APS Professionals gather information about a client’s demographics.. And all of this is done with a high level of respect for the client and with a desire to demonstrate inclusion. Even if demographic questions are gathered during intake, it’s still necessary and important for APS professionals to ask them during the interview. In this 9 minute video, viewers will observe an APS professional demonstrating one example of how some of those questions can be discussed.
