By Alfred Kadushin

While the use of tape recorders is a simple way to "capture" interviews conducted by social workers, there is a reluctance to use them, for fear of client resistance and of negative impact on the client-social worker interaction. In a study performed on parents of adoptive children, however, the majority of parents whose interviews were recorded were not bothered by the use of tape recorders, and the study found that no negative impact was observed by impartial outside investigators.
