dc.description A Practicum Report Submitted to the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research In Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for the Degree of Master of Social Work, University of Regina. iv, 68 p. en_US
dc.description.abstract The intention of this report is to serve as a reflective review of an eight-month part-time Master of Social Work field practicum, which I competed with the Saskatchewan Association of Social Workers (SASW) between the months of May and December 2009. My practicum activity drew from community development theory and was informed by a trend emerging across Canada towards the incorporation of anti-poverty strategies. I contributed to an organizing effort to draw together anti-poverty and social justice activists and organizations into a provincial network that has adopted the title Action for a Poverty Free Saskatchewan. The pages of this report outline the ideological and theoretical tenants that underpinned my work. I also reflect upon my fieldwork experiences through an evaluation of values, ethics, strategies, skills and future visions for my career and the profession of social work. I conclude that an anti-poverty strategy can assist in collective anti-poverty organizing. en_US
