In reflecting back starting the year I have to say I was extremely nervous. Many thoughts passed through my mind, “do I have what it takes for this career “and “am I able to influence change”. I knew I had to think back on some of the textbook information and how to apply it was another thought in my mind. Not only was I nervous I was petrified, I had been a stay at home mom for almost a year, I felt extremely shy and lacked adult social interaction. But I realized that I worked hard to get here and I was determined to finish.

The assessment in my internship was very structure and we also were provided with training that made it easy to complete. Our internship has an assessment sheet that walked us through necessary questions. The first portion of the assessment requested a clear statement of the needs and problem or situation.

After reviewing the plan and the assessment the client and I would discuss how to get the client to their desired goal and what resources would help. After that resources were provided and I would follow up with client and if plans need to be revised then that would be discussed. What I learned through this process is that revising is very common thing change for clients and us as social workers need to be flexible and understanding.
The fifth step is the evaluation process how is your client doing. Through our internship we were provided an evaluation scale to measure the client’s progress. This scale was very informative and was also used to get a baseline and post scale. In addition to this scale we also used a summery sheet here we would input if goal was achieved and it reflected the types of services provided to the client. Through this tool I could really see the results of the work I intended for the client. Through this evaluation I could understand what I missed or what I could do better next

    I saw in the interview that the focus on this relationship was significant in doing casework. The meaning of the relationship with individuals as a caseworker is very important. The relationship is dynamic because of the constant interaction of the feelings and attitudes between the social worker and the client which may increase or decrease throughout the problem-solving process, but never ceases as long as the relationship continues (Biestek, 1957). Some of the major qualities required to be a helping person has a wide span. During this interview my self- awareness kicked in, so I immediately started thinking about my relationship with my clients during Practicum.…

    Doing this allowed me opportunities to mentor others and I realized that I enjoyed help others learn things to make their jobs easier or at least more efficient. As I transitioned to a new job several years ago, I was afforded the opportunity to help my supervisor. Although she was feeling overwhelmed in her position I think I was able to help her become successful. Fortunately, this also allowed me to learn the things I would need to promote seamlessly into her position when she was promoted to another position. I was able to show my coworkers that I am a “team player” and still help with things around the office to ensure processing is done timely.…

    By doing this it allowed for us to effectively communicate with a common goal in mind. Since my client was referred to me there was definitely the beginning tension but I wanted my client to see the benefit of talking to someone who is outside of their life. Reflecting on both session I would say the second session went a lot smoother. I felt a lot more prepared going in with having information from class lectures, Scott Janssen’s presentation and Lindsay Currie’s presentations. This being said I still think there will always be room for improvement.…
