The social work practice skills I have achieved to date include a wide range of communication and interpersonal skills that have been developed through writing up case notes after meetings with clients, as well as debriefing with other social workers.

Moreover, I have obtained a greater self-awareness through reflecting in supervision and regular debriefing with peers in my PSAG group.
