Educating Effective Social Workers: Innovative Approaches to Prepare for and Enhance Field Education
Nov 20, 2018 12:00 pm EST
Description

This presentation will address teaching and learning processes that lead to effective social work graduates. A long-standing multi-project program of research on social work education has identified a model of holistic competence for all levels of social work practice. This model guides the design and testing of innovative approaches to teach and assess students’ practice. Simulation-based learning prepares, bridges, and enhances engagement in field learning. The presentation will draw from these experiences and research to identify best practices for field education.

This session is being delivered in partnership with Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN) School of Social Work.

Reducing Vulnerabilities and Promoting Resilience in Children and Youth Exposed to Intimate Partner Violence (IPV)
Nov 20, 2018 10:00 am EST
Description

If you cannot make the live event, register now to be sent a link to the On-Demand version to view at your convenience. 

We encourage you to test your system to ensure a smooth viewing experience.  

The “Make Resilience Matter” project uses NLSCY findings which show that IPV exposed children with better psycho-social outcomes have higher levels of school connectedness, family cohesion and social supports.

The qualitative data from this project support these results with interview participants reporting school/school related activities, extended family and social supports as contributing to their resilience processes.

These findings indicate that environments are critical to resilience promotion. Helping professionals need to enlist schools as vital resilience resources for youth for healthy outlets from violent environments. Extended family members and supportive adults are also crucial for these youth to turn to, as are strong social support networks. Availability of these options outside of the home appear to contribute to resilient outcomes for vulnerable IPV exposed youth.
