Field Education Calendar 2016-2017 (DOC)

Field Curriculum

Social work majors take four field placement courses, Introduction to Social Work, Theory and Practice I, II, and III. Each of these courses focuses on a different aspect of social work practice.

Pre-Professional Program

Introduction to Social Work (SWRK – 225) – The placement in this course which students take during the sophomore year, is an introduction to the social work profession. The focus of the field placement is to introduce students to the social agencies as the base for practice, and to offer the students a beginning experience in feeling comfortable interacting with clients. Student work habits, comfort with the agency structure, and ability to engage clients is the aim of supervision. The students are expected to work 80 hours during one semester. This course serves as a screen for the student’s continuation in the social work program, and is a requirement for admission to junior status in the program

Professional Program

Theory and Practice of Social Work I and II (SWRK – 325 and 326) – The placement in this course, which occurs during the junior year, focuses on social work intervention with micro systems (individuals, families and small groups). Students are assigned to a wide range of agencies in which social work is practiced. Sharing of experiences in class helps students to learn about practice in many settings. An in-depth examination of student practice, values and skills occurs during supervision. The student is expected to function as a beginning practitioner. The student is in the same placement for 200 hours for each of two semesters.

Applying to Theory and Practice of Social Work I & II

Theory and Practice of Social Work III (SWRK – 327) – The placement in this course, which occurs in the first semester of the senior year, focuses on social work intervention with macro systems (communities and organizations). Field placements focus on social change, advocacy, planning and administration. Students are in this placement for 200 hours for one semester.

Applying to Theory and Practice of Social Work III

Applying to Theory and Practices of Social Work I and II

Welcome to Theory and Practice of Social Work I and II field placement. You are probably reading this because you have been accepted to the Social Work Program and are preparing to enter field placement. We would like to make the process of obtaining your placements go as smoothly as possible.

Please read these pages before you have a field placement interview with Suzanne Badawi, Director of Field Education. Hopefully this material will give you most of the basic information about field so we can spend our time discussing your specific plans. Prior to meeting with Suzanne please:

  • Read these pages
  • Review the agency list
  • Schedule an appointment with Suzanne Badawi, Field Education Director- 201-684-7132, email- sbadawi@Ramapo.edu

You are about to embark on an exciting time in your social work education – your field placement. The majority of social work students throughout the country claim that their placements were the most important part of their social work experience. I hope that will be true for you.

At Ramapo College, we have three professional placements. They are connected to the Theory and Practice I, Theory and Practice II, and Theory and Practice III classes. Each placement is 200 hours (16 hours per week) per semester. Practice I and II are consecutive and are performed at the same agency. Practice III is usually at a different agency. The placement for Practice I and II runs concurrently with the course, which meets on Monday and Thursday from 9:45-11:15 A.M. The course focuses on the problem-solving model of the helping process. You are expected to apply concepts learned in the class to your work with clients in the field placement.

The focus of Theory and Practice I and II (held in the fall and spring semesters) is practice with individuals, families and small groups, also called “direct”, or “micro” practice. The focus of Theory and Practice III (held only in the fall semester of the senior year) is practice with communities and organizations, also called “macro” practice.

Time Expectations

The Theory and Practice I placement begins some time in the second half of September. The Theory and Practice II placement is completed between the end of April to mid May. You will be off for Thanksgiving, a few weeks between mid December and the start of the spring semester, and during spring break. Agency holidays, sick time, and snow days cannot be counted toward your needed hours, and must be made up within the semester.

Supervision

You will be assigned to a social work agency or host setting where social work is practiced. An experienced social worker, who holds a MSW (Masters in Social Work) Degree, will supervise you. That person is called a field instructor, as s(he) will play an important role in your education. Some of you may have a second supervisor, a task supervisor, who is usually an experienced staff member who does not necessarily have a MSW. This person will mentor you and provide assignments, but will not be responsible for the educational component of your supervision.

The field instructor will meet with you for at least one hour a week. She/he will review your work, read your process recording, discuss your clients, and help you develop new skills. You are expected to go to supervisory sessions prepared to discuss your work. We suggest students prepare an agenda before they go into a supervisory session.

Task Expectations – What will I do there?

Students are assigned a variety of tasks, depending upon the role of the social worker at the agency, and the level of skill of the student. In this placement, you are expected to conduct beginning social work activities. You are not there to be a clerical aide. At the beginning of the placement, you might be asked to shadow a worker, or you may be assigned to a specific individual client or group. The expectations of your abilities will rise as the year continues. You will experience:

  • Engaging with client systems
  • Identifying client problems
  • Gathering data – understanding the client situation
  • Making an assessment
  • Considering alternate interventions
  • Developing an action or intervention plan
  • Contracting with the client system
  • Intervening – playing an array of social work roles
  • Evaluating the intervention
  • Ending with the client system

How will I know that I am doing the right things at the agency?

During the school year, the teacher of your section of the practice course will follow your experiences in the field. In class, all students are expected to discuss fieldwork in relation to the course topics. Your teacher (called a faculty-field-liaison in this role) will make several telephone calls and at least one visit per semester to your agency.

Placement Procedures

Students will be assigned to the Theory and Practice I and II agencies by the Director of Field Education who will take your needs and thoughts into consideration. The purpose of the application form and the interview is for you to make your needs known to the field office..

In making the placement assignment, we consider several points:

  • Types of clients that interest you? i.e. children, elderly, young adult
  • Problem areas that interest you? i.e. domestic violence, substance abuse, developmental disabilities
  • Location (we try for the same county, but we cannot commit to for your specific town)
  • The presence of appropriate assignments at a given agency
  • The presence of adequate supervision – and a good match between student and field instructor

You might be interested in working with a population/problem area that is very new to you. You might be interested in a population with whom you have previously worked. Please review the list of social agencies on the web page. Come to the field placement interview with a list of the population and problem areas that interest you, as well as any agencies that look interesting to you.

The list of social agencies is an inventory of most of the agencies that have been field placement sites in the past, though we do not presently use all of the agencies. Use it as a general guide. Students could also be placed in agencies not on this list. If you have an agency in mind that you would like us to consider, please bring the agency name, telephone number, and name of contact person with you to the interview.

During the interview, your interests and specific needs will be discussed. In addition, possible agencies, which may meet your needs, will be discussed.

When will I know my placement?

After the interview Suzanne will contact appropriate agencies for your placement. When such an agency is identified, you will be requested by letter, to contact the agency, and arrange for an interview. Please attend that interview as soon as possible to confirm the placement. Unless you or the field instructor find a major reason why that placement is not appropriate, it is considered confirmed.

Please be aware that an increasing number of social agencies now require criminal background checks and/or fingerprints. These might be at either the agency or student expense.

Students are not placed in competition with other Ramapo students for a placement. Only one student per available site is sent for an interview. Agencies are not placed in competition with each other for a student. Students are sent to one agency at a time for an interview. Please do not ask to interview at several agencies and then expect to pick one. Ramapo College is only one of 15 colleges and universities seeking to place students in these agencies.

Next Steps

Applying to Theory of Practices of Social Work III

Congratulations, and welcome to the final segment of Theory and Practice of Social Work. You are probably reading this because you have completed your Theory and Practice I and II field placement and are now preparing to enter your final semester of field, Theory and Practice III. In order to make the process of obtaining your placement as smooth as possible, please read these pages . Hopefully this material will give you a lot of the basic information about the macro field placement.

Next steps:

  • Read these pages
  • Review the agency list
  • Complete and and submit the Theory and Practice III Field Application form (please sign indicating that you have read these field placement pages)
  • Once submitted, the  application form goes directly  to Suzanne Badawi, Director of Field Education

You are about to embark on an exciting time in your social work education – your final undergraduate field placement. Many social work students had a better idea of what to expect from their micro (direct practice) placements than from this macro placement. Nonetheless, most find this an invaluable part of their social work experience, one that expands their understanding of what lies behind the direct practice in agencies. Most social workers engage in a combination of direct and macro practice in their jobs. We want to make sure that you develop a full range of skills.

At Ramapo College, the Theory and Practice III placement is 200 hours (approximately 16 hours per week) over the course of the fall semester of the senior year, generally at a different agency than practice I and II. Like the first two semesters in field, this placement runs concurrently with the course, and you are expected to apply concepts learned in the class. The focus of Theory and Practice III is practice with communities and organizations.

Time Expectations

The Theory and Practice III placement begins early in September and is completed by mid December. You will have Thanksgiving off, but agency holidays, sick time, and snow days cannot be counted; they must be made up.

Supervision

You will be assigned to a social work agency or host setting where social work, community organizing, and/or advocacy are practiced. An experienced macro practitioner or administrator will supervise you. This person will mentor you, give you your assignments, and is responsible for the educational component of your supervision.

The field instructor will meet with you for at least one hour a week. S/he will review your work, read any written work, discuss your work and help you develop new skills. You are expected to go to supervision prepared to discuss your work. We suggest students prepare an agenda before they go into a supervisory session.

Task Expectations – what will I do there?

You will complete tasks designed to develop your advocacy and organizational skills, as well as increase your understanding of the power structure of the organization and of the community. You may work behind the scenes to sustain the organization and/or participate in direct outreach activities. Your tasks will vary according to the agency’s purposes and needs, many of which may include:

  • arranging and organizing public meetings and demonstrations
  • preparing leaflets, mailings and fund raising to sustain the organization
  • community organization
  • program planning
  • program evaluation – research
  • community planning
  • grant writing
  • other agency administrative tasks
  • learn decision making and power structure of the organization
  • direct outreach activities
  • develop agency data base for mailings
  • chart the decision making process and power structure of the community being discussed
  • social policy analysis
  • lobbying
  • attending and testifying at legislative and other public forums

How will I know that I am doing the right things at the agency?

During the school year, the teacher of your section of the practice course will follow your experiences in the field. In class, all students are expected to discuss fieldwork in relation to the course topics. Your teacher (called a faculty-field liaison in this role) will make several telephone calls and at least one visit during semester to your agency.

Placement Procedures

Suzanne Badawi, who will take your needs and thoughts into consideration, assigns students to the Theory and Practice III placement.

  1. Read this material
  2. Think about your interests, learning needs, and prior experiences
  3. Review the agency list
  4. Complete the application form.

The purpose of the application form is for you to make your needs known to Suzanne. Please include all of the necessary information. Add any written comments you want to make.

In making the placement assignment, we consider several points:

  • What types of clients interest you? (i.e. children, elderly, young adults…)
  • What problem areas interest you? (i.e. domestic violence, substance abuse, developmental disabilities)
  • Location (we try for the same county – we cannot aim for your specific town)
  • Your current level of skill and learning needs
  • The presence of appropriate assignments at a given agency
  • The presence of adequate supervision – and a good match between student and field instructor

The list of social agencies is an inventory of most of the agencies that have been field placement sites in the past, though we do not presently use all of the agencies. Use it as a general guide. Students may be placed in agencies not on this list. You may want to talk with the present seniors to hear about their experiences.

We will consider placements at specific agencies not previously used for Practice III. Please be aware that not all agencies or field instructors can provide a good macro practice experience. If you have an agency that you believe can provide the experiences outlined above, please have the potential field instructor write a letter to Suzanne Badawi. In the letter the person should state in detail what the agency does, what macro practice projects the student will work on, and how supervision will be provided. Suzanne will follow up with the agency director.

When will I know my placement?

After carefully reviewing your application, Suzanne will contact you via email or phone to discuss a potential field placement for you. When such an agency is identified, you will be requested to contact the agency, and arrange for an interview. Please attend that interview as soon as possible to confirm the placement. Unless you or the field instructor find a major reason why that placement is not appropriate, it is considered confirmed.

Please be aware that an increasing number of social agencies now require criminal background checks and/or fingerprints. These might be at either the agency or student expense.

Students are not placed in competition with other Ramapo students for a placement. Only one student per available site is sent for an interview. Agencies are not placed in competition with each other for a student. Student are sent to one agency at a time for an interview. Please do not ask to interview at several agencies and then expect to pick one. Ramapo College is only one of 15 colleges and universities seeking to place students in these agencies.
