10 Handouts: Includes:  APU Mission Statement  History of APU  BSW Mission Statement  MSW Program Mission Statement  MSW Concentrations

11  The Department of Social Work at Azusa Pacific University received initial accreditation from the Council on Social Work Education in 1982. Reaccreditation was successfully reinstated in 1990, 1998 and 2006.  The program has a strong and diverse generalist BSW program with approximately 115 majors.  The MSW Program, admitted the first cohort in fall of 2008, with approximately 70 students. Full-time and part-time options as well as Clinical Practice with Individuals and Families and Community Practice and Partnerships are program concentration options. The Program is currently in candidacy for full accreditation scheduled for 2011. APU Social Work History

12  Emphasis on NASW Code of Ethics  Students learn to balance faith, ethics and values in a professional setting

13  Q: Will APU students try to evangelize to the clients and staff at the agency?  A: APU students, like students in a non- faith based university, are held to the same standards and are expected to abide by the NASW Code of Ethics. Students should be using appropriate boundaries in classroom and field settings. If a student does try to evangelize to a client, this is an important boundary issue to be discussed in supervision.

21  Education Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) of the Council on Social Work Education: Education Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) of the Council on Social Work Education Accreditation Standard 2.1—Field Education—sets standards for the use of field education as an integral part of the MSW program. Defines the minimum number of hours required at bachelor’s and master’s level. Mandates that orientation and field instructor training be provided to agency-based field instructors. (2008 EPAS, pg 9-10)  Field Education is now considered the signature pedagogy.

22  Field Education is the capstone of the social work education experience  Students are develop skills through experiential learning in a supervised field setting  Focus turns from acquisition to application of knowledge (classroom to field)  Students learn to successfully integrate theory into practice  Upon completion, students should be ready to begin social work practice within an agency setting.

23  To facilitate positive and challenging experiential learning in a supervised field setting.  To partner with skilled, experienced, and motivated social work practitioners who love to teach  To train students in evidence-based practice methods consistent with current trends  To train competent advanced social work practitioners  To contribute to the workforce in the field of social work  To promote the integration of faith and social work practice

24 The Goal of Field: Integrating Classroom Knowledge in a Field Setting Acquisition of knowledge (Classroom) Application of knowledge (Field Setting) Integration Assessment & Interviewing Crisis Intervention Law and Ethics Practice Theories Macro Interventions & Treatment Planning



27  It sets the tone for a positive field experience  It alleviates fear and anxiety, common emotions for students new to social work  When a formal orientation is not provided, students waste agency time trying to find the information on their own, leaving less time for learning  Students are made to feel welcome at the agency

28  Plan before student arrives: ◦ Physical location –where will the student work? ◦ Communicate with other staff re: intern roles ◦ Ensure paperwork is taken care of  Conduct tour of agency  Schedule brief presentations by other staff  Develop an orientation packet (Handout 2A – Agency Orientation Quiz)

29  How do you prepare your agency and/or staff for your students’ arrival?  What do you provide that is a unique aspect of the orientation?  Who is involved in developing the field orientation packet?  Who is involved in the orientation?  How long is your orientation?

30  Important Policies and Procedures  Agency Description  Identification (how will students be referred)  Confidentiality  Safety Issues  Agency Jargon  Making Referrals  The Supervisory Relationship  Providing a Safe Learning Environment

31  On-site security, local law enforcement contact information  Provide emergency contact numbers  Abuse reporting numbers  Chain of command  Home visit protocol  Safety in the office  Dealing with violent or potential violent individuals  Dealing with suicidal individuals

32  Sexual Harassment Training  HIPAA/PHI and Documentation Standards  Blood borne Pathogen Training  Safety in the Workplace  Professional Conduct in the Workplace


34  Which of the following means the most to you?  Elvis joins the Army.  Jimi Hendrix dies  MTV debuts.  Kurt Cobain dies.

35  Your answer, of course, depends on your age—or more specifically, on the generation you belong to.  While pop music milestones may not seem all that important, the sum total of experiences, ideas and values shared by people of different generations makes for a melting pot of work approaches and priorities.

36 Four Generations working side by side  The Traditionalists/Silent/Great Generation (1933-1945)  The Baby Boomers (1946-1964)  Generation X (1965-1977)  The Millennial Generation (1978- 1998)

37 Characteristics:  Hardworking  Loyal  Work within the system/submissive  Technically challenged  Traditional  Have knowledge of legacy to share Implications:  Prefer face to face communication  Your word is your bond and you mean what you say  Good team players  You do not want your time wasted The Traditionalists (1933-1945)

38 Characteristics:  Optimistic  Independent  Competitive (in the workplace)  Focused on personal accomplishment  Work-centric ◦ Created the 60-80 hour work week Implications:  Expect for Generation X and Y should pay their dues  Prefer to be thorough when answering questions  Prefer options and flexibility The Baby Boomers (1946-1964)

39 Characteristics  Independent  Resilient  High adaptability/ flexible  Feedback is important  “I don’t need someone looking over my shoulder” Implications:  Email is a primary tool for communication  Two-way feedback is valued  Informal communication style is preferred  As an X’er the more information, the better Generation X (1965-1977)

40  75 million members  The most child-centric time in our history  Technically literate  Team oriented, band together socially  Multi-task with high energy  Expect structure in the workplace  Celebrate diversity  Socially conscience  Teamwork  Technology  Structure  Entertainment and excitement  Experiential activities The Millennial Generation (1978- 1998)

41 Resource: Millennials Rising: The Next Great Generation (2000)  Gives an account why they are hopeful for our future with this generation.  Compares Millennials to the “G I generation ” or our greatest generation  Explains cycling of generations The millennials come to campus by John Wesley Lowery and William Strauss

42  Millennials are confident, but unskilled: ◦ Provide mentors  Silent generation and a millennial are a nice pair ◦ Respond well to personal attention  Thrive in individual supervision/mentoring ◦ Give deadlines  planners ◦ Work well interactively  Groups and pairs  (Thielfoldt & Scheef, 2003) Present them with challenges with structure: ◦ Mentor in groups ◦ Break down goals into steps ◦ Offer necessary resources to complete the task ◦ Encourage them to use each other as a resource ◦ Utilize technology – this is their strength! Teaching tips:

43 Common Challenges  Deadline reminders  Informal relationships  Confidence  Want quick responses  Personalize outcomes  Capitalize on these teaching moments!  Field implications  Modeling  Reinforcing  Educate on the therapeutic process


45 Challenges with Supervising Non-Millennials  These include students who have returned to school after extended work experience  Part-time students (AKA “working students”) ◦ Characteristics:  Extremely responsible  Insecurity – needing to prove they are graduate school “material”  Juggling multiple responsibilities – work, home & family, school  Interns with more experience than field instructor  “are they teachable?”  Considerations: student openness to teaching, making school/field a priority


47  BSW Students are generally in their early 20s.  Have been traditional students

48 MSW Field Students’ Age Breakdown

49 MSW Students vs.Field Instructors

50  Talk about the generation you identify with most  What adjustments will you make to your supervision style?

51  “Katie,” 20 year old, Caucasian, traditional BSW student  “typical millennial” – sheltered, confident, self- centered, limited life skills, expected to be catered to both in the classroom and in the field.  Challenges in supervision – would be late or miss supervision; unprepared for supervision  Challenges in field – often late, poor attendance, required a lot of direction, perceived by staff that she was not motivated  Strengths – socially likeable, intelligent confident, multi-tasker, international minded

52 Providing a Safe Learning Environment

53  Build the foundation for a successful year in field by: ◦ Beginning with an effective orientation ◦ Formalize a supervision schedule ◦ Discuss hopes and expectations ◦ Provide specific expectations for field performance ◦ Refer to Learning Agreement to begin goal setting ◦ Give immediate feedback when possible ◦ Give positive as well as constructive feedback often ◦ Make a point of getting to know your student(s) ◦ Identify student strengths and challenges in learning ◦ Identify your student’s learning styles vs. your own
