Course Aims

The first practicum provides students a goal-directed learning experience, part of which is incidental learning, in helping them to experience and understand what real-life practice is like and how a service delivery system operates in the organizational environment of a social work agency. In addition, students will, by way of taking on the staff and professional roles, acquire the professional identity of a social worker.

This course aims to enable students to:

1.1 apply and integrate social work theories and methods in the practicum service setting;

1.2 develop professional skills to implement social work theories and methods in practice;

1.3 familiarize with the professional role and staff role in host agencies; and

1.4 develop reflective attitude and skills in practice as they internalize social work values and ethics.
