Community Living Division: a field practicum placement
MetadataShow full item record
This comprehensive report outlines my field practicum experience with Community Living Division in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. Over a period of three months, I provided support to persons with intellectual disabilities, accessing resources from the Client Services Unit and Outreach and Prevention Services. Based on my experiences, the concept of ideology will be explored in the context of societal, agency and personal perspectives. The application of critical disability theory and systems theory will be used in the analysis of oppression, as demonstrated within the medical model and group home settings. Additionally, the strategies and skills utilized during the field practicum will be summarized and ethical considerations presented. The report will conclude with a discussion surrounding professional development and implications for future social work practice.
