Additional information for SOWK492

In Fieldwork Practice 2, the student is expected to demonstrate that (s)he has formed an integrated practice theory for working in the social services. This is expected to be realised through the achievement of the following objectives: assessing and selecting appropriate intervention and change strategies, and applying these in practice; critically appraising agency policy (or the placement setting), and its ability to provide services and respond to social needs; understanding how political, legal, and organisational institutional processes impinge upon people, and ways in which rights can be asserted; and finally, appraising one's own work performance and, through supervision, taking responsibility for improving it.
