MetadataShow full item record
The following is a reflective paper that chronicles my practicum experience at the Regina Mental Health Clinic from September 3, 2013 to February 20, 2014. My primary objective of the practicum was to acquire graduate level social work knowledge of severe and persistent mental illness and the supports and programs available to clients and their families. This paper follows the Direct Practice Framework recommended for Integrative Practicum Reports as outlined by the University of Regina, Faculty of Social Work. The framework includes the following headings: Ideology, Theory and Models of Practice, Values, Ethics, Relationships, Strategies, Skills and Vision. This paper is a reflective review of my observations, experiences and acquisition of knowledge, along with the integration of theoretical and practice implications experienced during my practicum.
