About this item
The Practicum Companion for Social Work covers topics including: getting started in your career; socialization and establishing a professional identity; working safely; making the most of practicum supervision; organizational context; social work practice at all client system levels; social work and the legal system; and terminating effectively from the practicum. To make the material more accessible, the book follows the progress of five students—Ben, Cameron, Corina, Lauren and Rosa—as they move through their own practicum experiences. Their real-life stories help spur discussion while allowing students to apply the knowledge, skills, and/or issues presented in the text. To further stimulate critical thinking and discussion, the text provides practice connections and applications in each unit.
