This is very important: You will relate this assignment to the CORE COMPETENCY 5 on the attached Learning Contract: Core Competency 5: Engage in Policy Practice in Advanced Social Work Practice
During this and all of your eight-week seminars, you will be required to meet with your field practicum supervisor approximately five times. Additional supervision may occur in groups or as part of team conferences (or individually). You can use the Student Record of Supervision form not only to prepare for your supervision meetings (create an agenda), but also to describe what was discussed in the different areas in specific categories (Head/Heart/Hand), as well as action steps for follow-up. Not all items on the Student Record of Supervision form need to be addressed at each meeting, but they will serve as a guide in identifying priorities and covering key areas of competency development in supervision over the course of the field practicum.
The Student Record of Supervision form is required to be submitted approximately five times during this seminar. Although you will come to supervision with an agenda (based on the Student Record of Supervision form), your field practicum supervisor may require other topic areas or assignments for upcoming supervision at her or his discretion. The Student Record of Supervision form asks you to follow the three key interrelated elements of professional practice of the Head, the Heart, and the Hand during each supervision meeting You also will be required to ensure that each Student Record of Supervision form includes at least one area of growth or improvement and at least one area of strength documented by the field instructor. When completing the final version of your record of supervision for review and approval be sure to include all relevant areas of discussion as indicated on the form. Information provided in your record of supervision should include the topics covered, brief descriptions of cases or issues discussed, specific guidance or instruction provided by your field instructor and follow up items specific to the area described. Provide detailed, specific and meaningful information to show what you are learning. Write your record of supervision as if you are taking detailed minutes of the meeting so that the reader can easily and fully understand what you discussed and learned from the meeting.
Review the rubric to make sure you understand the criteria for earning your grade.
