Process Recording

The proceeding in a group process recording that I facilitated for the Warrior inpatient mental
health facility. This process recording was done during the initial meeting of new patients to the
facility. The purpose of this meeting was to inform the patients what they can expect from
Warrior impatient mental health facility along with what was expected out of them. In this
process recording I make note of what was being said along with my feelings and interpretations
of the groups initial reactions.

with how she is
feeling and her
interpretation of how
Tiera is feeling.


Raelle took initiative

and went into further
details explaining to
Tiera. I see that both
Raelle and Tiera can
work well together.


Coralie is using jokes

to try to change the
topic as she is
uncomfortable with
the fact that she will
be staying at the
facility for a few days

Christy was able to
interpret her feelings
through the tough
demeanor she is
trying to hide behind.

Coralie is easily hurt;

her way of dealing
with the pain is hiding
behind a tough
appearance. I think
that this group will
work together well,
being able to help
each other through
