When working in Human Services, the intake process lays the foundation for building the helping relationship. The way intakes are done can vary from agency to agency. Many organizations will have specific forms or paperwork that the client will complete and go over with the Human Services professional. The information collected in the intake is only the beginning when it comes to learning about the client’s needs. Human Services professionals need to be mindful of how the intake discussion is communicated and documented. It is important to keep the language neutral and objective.
