Practice based on empirical knowledge helps reduce bias, enables workers to study interpretations, perspectives or alternative solutions, and makes social workers more accountable for their decisions JD Hudson (1997). The dialogue between theory and practice In the past and present, there is hesitation among practitioners in social work to adapt theory and research because they feel that the reference to theory is the loss of connection with reality when practicing social work. In order for the social worker to be an effective practitioner, man must have a sound theoretical basis and this is not easy to achieve. It was argued that decision-making based on empirical evidence should replace moralistic judgment JD Hudson (1997). The theory would provide guidance towards more effective practice, and give social workers A measure of confidence this is done if we build on effective strategies and techniques and build removable knowledge by directing others to what is common and known and is updated
For example, there is confusion as to what these terms developmental social work actually mean in practice and this has limited its application (Patel and Hochfeld, 2012). The terms social development, developmental social welfare and developmental social work are very familiar in social work hence confusing practitioners. According to a study by Patel & Hochfeld (2012) in an attempt to explain what developmental social work and social work mean, respondents idetified key concepts that influence their understanding of developmental social work such as empowerment; capacity building development; and participation. These are concepts that match established social work conventions in that they are commonly used in individual and community empowerment practice. However, other aspects of developmental social work such as high impact interventions, generalist interventions, economic development, and broad human rights promotion and advocacy, were cited less frequently by the respondents.
Rothman, Carson, and Madoc-Jones (2011), suggest many controversies occur between social work theories and the practitioner's interpretation of those theories are a subject of great concern in the field of social work. The importance of this research is not just academic, but important to society as a whole. Findings such as those of by Rothman, Carson, and Madoc-Jones, (2011), regarding the interpretation of social problems, demonstrate how quickly and inaccurately social workers can employ erroneous judgment based on the automatic activation of their views or beliefs. As society is forever increasing in its intermixing of individuals from different social and ethnic groups, social workers must further increase their understanding of inter-group
The purpose of this book is to explore various avenues of the existing ‘Age of Fact’ and the urgent role of the social analyst to integrate the particular history, biography, and social structure of humankind. According to Mills, the sociological imagination is to be aware of the idea of social structure and to use it with sensibility. He noticeably believes that the sociological imagination can only initiate and direct the individual towards the synoptic internalization and realization of social, cultural, and political realm, which would assist the social researcher to transform the understandings of his scientific experience. Subsequently, he validated the social-science study through translating the private issues to public issues. In addition, he strongly discusses against the overall abstract empiricist general theory of certain structural functionalist theorists of that time, for instance, the Parsonian text of General Theory of Action.
The healthcare professionals should incorporate sociology concepts to relate human studies with a health professional. The sociological perspectives of the roles of health perspectives lie in the functionalist and the Marxist view that illustrates social and economic perspective of people in the society. Functionalist and Marxism Functionalist view argues that the society is similar to the body of human being. In this case, different structures develop and are dependent on each other. The view further argues that the society is more important than institutions and thus social institutions exist in order to create a social order in the society.
THE APPLIED SOCIAL WORK MODEL The social work model that can be applied to this case is the Social Ecological Model. Socio-ecological models were introduced after the First World War by Chicago School sociologists as a reaction to the narrow scope of human developmental research. This approach has increasingly become a focus in social work practice over the years as it integrates both treatment and reform by emphasizing the developing transactions between persons and their physical and social environments. Through this model, James will be seen as an active, dynamic part of the interaction process between the people and systems in his environment, and not just a passive reactor, so that his coping patterns can be improved. This will also allow

1. What is implicit personality theory? This theory is a set of assumptions that a person makes, often unconsciously, about the correlations between personality traits, including such widespread expectations of impression positively correlated with generosity, so that a person who is cold is perceived as being likely to be serious. Some implicit personality theories also include correlations between psychological and dimensions of impressions. Additionally, specific patterns and biases an individual uses when forming impressions based on a limited amount of initial information about an unfamiliar person.
This theory states that students learn through direct experience, observation, and modeling. Modeling is also present in how we develop language abilities (Bandura, 1989). Of course teachers exhibit different nonverbal behaviors that may influence students ' learning English. In Social Cognitive Theory, people are neither driven by inner force nor automatically shaped and controlled by the environment. Bandura (1986) states that learning can occur by watching others and then modeling what they do or say which is known as observational learning.
CHAPTER II 2.0 LITERATURE REVIEW This chapter will provide review from previous research and articles that is related to this research topic. There are previous researches that have done research on the integration of theory into practice and develop a better understanding on the correlation between theory learning and also clinical practices among students. Other than that, the importance of both theory and clinical practical has been discussed. 2.1 DEFINITION OF THEORY LEARNING The knowledge based in medical imaging and management science includes theory, which in turn includes concepts, methods and principles. The principles are related and can be observed and can be verified by some degree when they are translated into the art or practice
