This paper summarizes my MSW Field Practicum experiences which took place with the Ministry of Social Services, Child and Family Programs. In this paper an overview of trauma and developmental trauma is offered, with a discussion about supporting behaviour related to trauma exposure in children. The clinical work that was undertaken is outlined, alongside a discussion of theories and approaches that assisted in informing the work. General recommendations that assist in supporting challenging behaviour are offered. The professional development opportunities, as well as the challenges that arose throughout the practicum, will be reflected upon in this paper. A discussion of values and ethics is also incorporated within these pages. The central intention of this report is to examine how I was able to meet learning objectives throughout the field practicum process by integrating theory into practice.
