INTRODUCTION After intervening or interaction with different stakeholders within the service industry it is always important for a practitioner to reflect on those interactions or interventions made. The reflection helps us evaluate our growth at personal and professional levels. Supervision is a good aspect of personal growth of different people and it is important that people receive supervision. During fieldwork placement all the students are assigned supervisors that are to help the student reach their learning outcomes and adapt to the service provision in the agency. I was attached at the Sekgoma Memorial Hospital in Serowe during my third year placement.
These people are my direct network who may provide adequate insight into the job and pointers in becoming a successful social work in such a fast-paced setting. Additionally, I can reach out to other social workers within this field by going to networking events, professional group regional or national conferences, and LinkedIn. In regards to my licensing requirements, I would need to reach out to my supervisor at the full-time position to gain supervision for difficult situations, so I can handle the case properly. With the adequate resources, the patient will be able to move forward with a proper plan. With regards to working with the Asian population, I would need to reach out to more Asian social workers, psychologists, or psychiatrists within my community to survey and learn about their understanding of the group’s usage of mental health and social workers within their
I have volunteer at Homeless Shelters and familiar with despair and struggling to survive with no employment for over two years. Further, experiences I have contributed in my ability to understand and work with people are as following: I have experience upon reading some of the Social Work books and NASW website, the new codes and articles concerning ethic values and the cultures of different populations. I have experience through my Field Seminar at Lee/Terrell County Department of Family and Children Services, of interviewing clients and assessing their biopsychosocial. I have experience participating in team meetings in better serving the clients. I have experience researching articles for professors in the Criminal Justice Department on African American Males and Families.
INTRODUCTION During this reflective essay I will discuss my role, responsibility and accountability as the student’s mentor. Hamill (1999) considers the use of first person to be suitable when writing on personal reflection. In accordance with the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s (2015) guidelines relating to confidentiality, the mentored students will be named Sam and Jane. The essay will also reflect on approaches that I have used to support and facilitate the students to achieve specified learning outcomes. According to Lanser (2000) the crucial goal of mentorship is for an individual to contribute to the professional development of another.
Social workers have to work with vulnerable group and they need to guarantee professionalism in order to stick with their guidelines (Smith, 2008). From the reflection of my own social work experience, I will reflect over clear path of knowledge that is based on my practical knowledge linked with actions, judgement and challenges that I had to face. The knowledge and experience of social work is a professional content part, and it is based on individual level and part of overall performance of professional level which is accepted widely by communities. Currently, I am working a social worker and my main
When I began this course, in my understanding the purpose of social work was improving the physical environment of individual as in a micro level and to also promote the justice of society as in a macro level. As my learning about this profession continued to process, my ideas of social work purpose have expanded. According to the purpose for this profession which is defined by The National Association of Social Workers, the mission is to " promote or restore a mutually beneficial interaction between individuals and society in order to improve the quality of life for everyone" (Dubois, 2004), Thus far, my journey through the different courses at COSTAATT has yielded magnificent knowledge in the field. As I continued without prejudice, I can
The final purpose of the essay is to demonstrate an understanding of reflection and how reflective practice can support an individual’s own personal and professional learning development. Nicol (2016) stated that “reflection is a method of using experiential knowledge to enable professional and personal development while reinforcing continuous learning”. Reflection can allow an individual to understand a topic so that they can improve how they perform in their job leading to an improved health care experience. Tsingas-Lucas, Bosnic, Schneider and Smith (2016) highlighted the importance of reflective practise. The authors stated that it is important for medical professionals.
INTRODUCTION 1.1 Background of the study Clinical teaching is an important part of nursing education. Through nursing education, nursing student will be able to obtain necessary knowledges and skills to assist public health. Recognizing nursing students’ perception on clinical education is the first step to remove the barriers of challenge (Heidari & Norouzadeh, 2015). The dynamic process of clinical instruction occurs in a variety of social-culture contexts and the behavior of clinical instructors play an important role in the learning process of students. Clinical instructors have the opportunity to greatly influence their students’ learning that eventually graduate and shape the nursing practice.
While completing these assessments, I thought of my characteristics and skills and used some evidence from my everyday interactions. Taking these assessments for the first time in Module 1 was when I thought about my strengths and areas that need to be improved in the context of trying to be a better and effective professional practitioner for social change. As I reflected on each skill I noticed that many of these skills are also essential to be an effective teacher. This exercise has made me realize that being an effective professional practitioner for social change is a key role for a teacher(Anderson et al.,2009), and that I had been a professional practitioner for social change in my role as class teacher and subject leader in my school for many years, but at first I had been unaware of the theory behind the practice. The exercise shows that my main
The ethics of one-on-one mentoring involves how the mentoring expectations are formulated and performed. Working in a mentoring atmosphere can be as important as the availability of one-on-one help. Group leaders, from department chairs to research directors, have an ethical obligation to create an environment that supports fair treatment and professional development opportunities for all group members. With such broad ethical responsibility, mentoring issues can intermixed with issues of bias, health and safety, and maintaining the intrinsic ethical standards of the discipline. Most students will mentor someone during their college experience.
