Learning Goal: I’m working on a writing discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
Welcome to your Weekly Competency Discussion! As you know, CSWE requires that BSW & MSW students are trained in 9 competency areas (2015 Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards). This ensures that you are competent to practice as a Social Worker when you complete your educational program. These weekly discussions will help you to fuse the theory of these competencies with the field experience you are gaining in your practicum. In other words, you will gain a deeper understanding of how these apply in “real life.”
Please take the time to reflect on these competencies and their applications.
This week the Social Work Competency is:
Competency 2: Engage Diversity and Difference in Practice
After reviewing the competency, please address the following in the discussion board:
1. Provide a short summary of the meaning of the competency. You are required to cite at least one source outside of the 2015 Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards posted above. Be sure to properly use APA citation for your source(s).
2. How have you implemented this competency into practice in your field practicum experience?
Please remember Discussion Board Posts are considered academic writing and will be evaluated as such. Please provide an extensively thought out, thorough response. Submissions that are posted hurriedly can be detected. So slow down, start early and take your time. When responding to your peers, please consider carefully whom you are responding to, why you are responding to that peer, and how you are responding. Make sure your responses are just as thought out and thorough as your original post.
This assignment has 2 components: (1) Your Post after reviewing the above questions – submit a substantive post following the guiding questions or instructions. A substantive post addresses ALL the guiding questions thoroughly incorporating any assigned readings and posing thought-provoking questions to your peers. (2) Second, your response to at least one other post answering your colleague’s questions or expanding on their post. Please add your peer’s name in your response to their post. Your response is due every Sunday at 11:59 pm. Each reply must be 100 to 150 words to be substantive. Posts like “I agree,” or “Great post” are nice, good-will posts, but they do not count as a graded post. Note: Plagiarism is a violation of the honor code – recycling information from current or previous students will result in a failing grade.
