Details: Product Description Using their proven question and answer format, the latest edition of Field Instruction retains the authors' established approach and paves the way for students to move out of the classroom and into their internships. Pragmatic suggestions and ways to troubleshoot potential problems in their practicum guide students to the successful completion of their field experience. New or expanded topics include CSWE's 2015 Competencies and Associated Behaviors, social media, electronic medical records, cultural competence, suicide, domestic violence, child and elder abuse, and professional behavior. Many new, topically relevant, suggested readings have been added throughout the text. This accessible guide begins by addressing questions about partnering with local service agencies and preparing for the first interview before it delves into juggling responsibilities and practical problems such as assessing the needs of diverse clients. The authors integrate classroom knowledge and real-world settings by providing case examples, critical thinking questions, and exercises throughout the text. Each chapter's coverage is linked to CSWE's 2015 Competencies and Behaviors. End-of chapter practice tests gauge mastery of chapter content. These outstanding features augment students' understanding of different aspects of social work and challenge them to think about how they would react to real-life experiences in the field.
