Field Instruction is a comprehensive, student-friendly guide for those beginning their first social work field experience.
The text addresses the most common questions, concerns, and problems students encounter in their field practicums and provides them with essential information for completing the field experience successfully. It is structured so that “early” questions about preparing for the first interview are presented ahead of more complicated issues such as resolving ethical dilemmas.
New to This Edition
• Thirty-eight new end-of-chapter Exercises encourage students to think critically about issues raised in the chapter.
• This edition covers areas of increasing concern to social workers, such as stress (Chapter 4) and safety (Chapter 5).
• Chapter 8 offers expanded coverage of legal issues.
