The sources of support for planning and reviewing own development could be from my manager, colleagues, meetings, mentors, or through observation.
The nature of personal knowing has been discovered by numerous writers and researchers in dissimilar ways. Carper advise that “it promotes wholeness and integrity in the personal encounter” she continues that there is a constant process toward knowing the self since “one does not know about the self-one strives to know the self”. Chinn & Kramer enlighten that by knowing the self-one can truly understand the other person. As Carper states, none of the empirical categories of personal characteristics and actions provide a deep knowledge of a human being as a person; as a self. Additionally Carper highlights the significance of “therapeutic use of self” which only becomes imaginable through personal knowing. In the therapeutic use of self, the
(2011) stated that relationship-based practice is important because it encourages a practitioner to act in the service user’s best interests by “holistically understanding the service user’s response to a certain situation.” This includes understanding their cultural backgrounds, needs and values so that their response is supported and understood. Wilson et al. (2011) suggests that relationship-based practice is important in a social work setting as it understands that human behaviour and the professional relationship is an essential component on any professional intervention. The relationship based practise emphases the importance of the ‘use of self’ in interventions as it contributes to a professional’s experiences (Ruch, et al., 2010). This is supported by the professional capabilities framework (PCF) domain one (Professionalism) as it states the importance of making skilled use of self as part of interventions that aim to help clients and being able to maintain awareness of own professional limitations and knowledge
From these realizations I have concluded that the professional nursing theories which most align with my own philosophy is a combination of Jean Watson’s theory of human caring and Rosemarie Parse’s theory of human becoming.
The role of a care worker is to support the individuals and allow them to live their lives the way they want to. The individuals that you will be supporting will be different and they may have different conditions but they have the same rights as everyone else. The only difference will be is that the individual will need more care and support than others will in order to help them achieve what they want to achieve. The level of care and support will depend on the level of the individual’s ability and the choices they want to make.
The National Association of Social Workers (NASW, 2009) Code of Ethics is a guide to social workers’ practice by offering standards, values, and principles. The Code of Ethics is useful in facilitating the social workers’ decision-making process when he is presented with complicate ethical issues. Ethical issues arise with conflicting values, principles, and standards. These conflicts may occur between the social worker and his clients, agency, or institutional policy, other social workers, professional in other disciplines, or the social worker’s personal values.
What is Identity? Identity is like a fingerprint; it clearly determines who people are. Identity is something that people are not born with, it is an act people do that classifies their identity. People need to act upon their own choices to determine their own identity rather than being influenced by the choices of others. So, people must follow their own path in order to keep their own unique identity. The sources used include “Soy Yo” by Bomba Estereo, a music video. “Self-Concept” by Saul Mcleod, where Mcleod talks about how people see themselves. “Carapace” by Romesh Gunesekera, which talks about a man staying at the beach hut because his passion in cooking. Finally, “Identity” by Kayla Si, Reno, where the article talks about a self experience
As part of my developmental learning for final year of social work is my emerging practice framework. A practice framework is designed as a tool for practitioners (Connolly, 2006). It is a statement about how I will practice as an emerging social worker. This semester I will work on this document throughout my final placement. This critical reflection on practice will identify and critically analyse the building blocks of my emerging practice framework, as evidenced through my own practice. It will document and analyse my engagement of social work practice from my placement experience.
Chapter two in the textbook Reflect & Relate an Introduction to Interpersonal Communication by Steven McCornack talks all about what “self” is and how to achieve complete fulfillment for one’s self which is also known as self-actualization. The components of self, as described in the book are, “ . . . self-awareness, self-concept, and self-esteem” (McCornack 39). Self-awareness is the idea in which one can take a moment to move feelings, beliefs, and other external influences aside and just evaluate oneself in a holistic perspective that is not skewed by opinions of others, etc. Having the ability to actually think about who one is brings a lot of power and mental stability in such a way that allows for improvement. For example,
In our practice as social workers, we are urged to view and understand human behavior as a set of complex interactions between individuals and their environment. This is known as the person-in-environment framework. This framework encourages us to acknowledge the influence of environment on our lives and provides a beneficial framework to think about and understand human behavior (Hutchinson, 2017). Understanding our work from this perspective allows us to approach our clients from a multi-dimensional stance, taking into consideration how various factors, including but not limited to, race, class, age and gender create individual identity and shapes an individual’s experience in the context of
Eckroth-Bucher (2010), defines the concept ‘self-awareness’ as a “cerebral exercise of introspection.” This particular attribute reflects on the cognitive exploration of one’s own thoughts, feelings, beliefs, values, behaviours, traits and motivations. The examination of one’s self is an essential part of personal growth, helping to manage oneself as well as improving performance (Rasheed, 2015). It is essential for nurses to be able to identify these triggers as they occur in the subconscious behaviour, certain looks or tones of voice can quickly convey a misinterpreted message. For some, self-awareness comes naturally, whilst others need more time and effort. Nurses lacking in self-awareness are more likely to repeat the same mistakes and voice personal opinions and beliefs on others who may not share the same morals. Awareness and capability to set aside these thoughts and feelings allow nurses to become more person-centred, develop active listening skills and build caring and therapeutic environments (Bramhall, 2014). Becoming self-aware can be achieved by different ways, self-reflection, journal writing and seeking opinions from other as well as learning about body language contributes to a better understanding of one’s self. This essentially allows nurses to identify the negative behaviours of self and change them into positive ones, resulting in a therapeutic environment for the patients (Rasheed,
Social Care Practice is a generic term that has been used to define the practice of providing physical, emotional and or psychological support to people with variety of needs and in contemporary times, the social care environments has widened to include care for the elderly, care for people with a physical or intellectual disability, community care, family support and residential care for old people, children and adults (Lyons, 1998).
The person is always a central axis in the process of social work. A person who becomes a client of the social worker is unique, his life history is unrepeatable. When a professional social worker affiliates a relationship with his client, he knows that his personality is violated, so they together have to try to restore a mutual beneficiary interaction between this person and the society. A social worker can accomplish this purpose just if his activity is conducted by highest values. In the activities of a social worker who is creating a relationship of helping the main aim is to reach personal respect for a person and his dignity. The social worker firstly has to stimulate the
Mylin was referred by Instructor Phillips to create a psychosocial on self for educational purposes. The cause of referral was due to a classroom activity that occurred in the month of October where classmates interviewed each other.
This discussion provides a reflective assessment on my experiences and development in three years study. The intention of this reflection is to demonstrate an understanding of my views on sport coaching of reflection and the issues surrounding reflective practice. Firstly, I discuss my personal and professional skills development. To do this, I have used academic models of reflection to reflect on my personal skills, enquiry skills and Project modules. All of these can step-by-step help me develop my personal and professional skills, also provide a foundation for continued professional development. To conclude my reflection, I have discussed my future employability, how to use the skills and experiences to own professional development,
