Clinical social worker interview questions shared by candidates
Tell us about your professional background? What strengths would you bring to Virginia Mason? Why are you interested in pursuing a career opportunity at our organization? What are you passionate about?
Q3: If a patient is ready to be discharged according to your professional assessment, but the psychiatrist states the patient needs to stay longer, what would you do?
I weas asked what three things I would want with me if I were to get stuck on a desert island. I understand this is no longer asked. Other questions were standard, such as questions about what extent of experience I had with addictions. I was given a position working with addicts, but was not informed I would be doing this until after I accepted the job, so asking lots of questions about what they expect is very important. I was also asked what theoritical base I used. Centerstone uses largely behavioral-cognitive protocols, so that is the correct answer, in my opinion.
