Overview: 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: Covers issues of increasing concern to social workers, such as Stress in Ch. 4, "The Student Intern: Learning New Roles", and Safety in Ch. 5, "Client Systems". "What Is Evidence-Based Social Work?" and "What Is HIPAA?", legal issues of particular importance to students in field placements, are covered in an expanded Ch. 8, "Legal and Ethical Concerns". New to this edition: 38 new exercises have been added to this edition. Perforated pages allow for end of chapter exercises to be completed and submitted to instructors. What Reviewers Are Saying: "A quick and accessible reference guide, a survival tool for students entering the field."
