Each student is expected to write one entry every week, which will be submitted

Each student is expected to write one entry every week, which will be submitted weekly
(2-15). There will be total of fourteen (14) journal entries. Journal entries will include a
brief discussion on learning experiences which have taken place over the past week.
Integration of learning from the student’s social work course content (e.g. HBSE,
practice, psychopathology, leadership, research, etc) is to be emphasized. In addition, the
student will address how he/she demonstrated a Saint Leo core value over the week in the
field internship. Each log should contain a general list of activities and reflection of at
least one learning experience describing the student’s reaction/feelings

Module 1 asks you to think about many different aspects of your internship agency’s identity and context. While many of these perspectives were probably familiar to you from previous coursework, you perhaps found you were asked to apply concepts or perspectives that were new to you. Create an initial post that addresses the following points:
Which concepts in the chapter were most familiar and easiest to apply? List and describe, using the page numbers in the text as citations.
Which concepts, if any, were new to you? List and describe, using the page numbers in the text as citations
Identify concepts that you found most difficult to understand or to apply to your organization. List and describe, using page numbers in the text as citations.
Discuss at least 3 things that made these concepts so challenging for you and discuss at least 3 steps you could take to understand how to apply them in your HUS practice.

This week, you reviewed promising and best practices for recovery-oriented practices for individuals with severe mental illness. Based on the disorder you selected and researched last week and considering how social workers understand that evidence that informs practice derives from multi-disciplinary sources and multiple ways of knowing., think of potential best practices that could help these clients.
Prepare a white paper that which could be submitted for publication in professional resources such as those offered by the National Association of Social Workers.
In your white paper demonstrate an understanding of the processes for translating research findings into effective practice. and be sure to include the following:
1. Identify and explain a promising intervention from your research showing how you understand methods of identifying, analyzing and implementing evidence-informed interventions to achieve client and constituency goals..
2. Interpret best practices or supporting services from this week’s readings and your own research.
3. Explain how these best practices are add-ons to other interventions including qualitative and quantitative methods for evaluating outcomes and practice effectiveness
4. Determine the challenges faced by social workers in implementing these practices.
Support your assignment with at least three scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including seminal articles, may be included.
WEEK 5 Reading:
Week 5
Emerging and Best Practices in Treating Individuals with Severe and Persistent Mental Illness
Last week, you read about evidence-based practices/interventions for the recovery of mental illness. EBPs are favored in the recovery-oriented treatment of mental illness because they combine well-researched interventions with clinical experience, ethics, client preferences, and culture to guide and inform the delivery of treatment and services. EBPs use more rigorous criteria typically requiring demonstration of effectiveness through randomized controlled trials or clinical replication series, effective experiential design, and independent replications (Ordway, McMahon, De Las Heras Kuhn, & Suchman, 2018). However, there remains debate regarding EBP among social workers who are not always in agreement regarding the best treatment or how to weigh the factors that contribute to good outcomes. Social workers indicate a broad range of general and specialized service delivery frameworks, models, and intervention strategies of potential relevant to mental health services. Some social workers remain reluctant about changing their practice on the basis of research evidence, and their skepticism is fueled by the methodological challenges and problems related to mental health research. For example, the research literature provides some assistance regarding evidence-based treatment frameworks; however, social workers cite limited guidance on optimal delivery systems for mental health services, so treatment becomes trial and error.
To accommodate these differences, social workers must be provided with a wide range of treatment options, some supported by evidence as described in Week 4, and by others representing emerging approaches or best practices for the construction of the best plan for the client. This week, you will explore emerging or promising interventions for helping individuals with mental illness to recover. These interventions do not yet have enough evidence to be empirical practices, but they are new or developing areas of interest, and each may quite possibly be under study at this current time. For example, the U.S. military has started initiatives to examine mobile mental health technology to enhance mental health care. Communication preference among service members receiving mental health care indicates that they favor provider communication using their mobile phone and text messages (Stanfill, Kinn, & Bush, 2014). Likewise, the Veterans Health Administration reports significant interest in using mobile technology to supplement mental health care and improve communication with providers (Miner, Kuhn, Hoffman, Owen, Ruzek, & Talyor, 2016).
This week, you will also review best practices to assist individuals with severe mental illness—as without these interventions, some clients may be prevented from achieving a high quality of life within their communities.

A safe and nurturing environment promotes healthy development, whereas, a dysfunctional environment can have damaging
effects on early development. Social workers can help by educating parents about the adverse effects of inadequate care on infants, toddlers, and younger or older children.
Plan a health fair to educate parents about the qualities that contribute to
positive development during infancy, toddlerhood, early childhood, and middle childhood.
Create a 2-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation with speaker’s notes to share the details of your health fair.
In your
presentation:
first slide: Include the goal, purpose, or focus of your health fair.
second slide: Highlight the key information that you want to share about
the different developmental stages.

To better understand our own biases, complete the Implicit Association Test (IAT

To better understand our own biases, complete the Implicit Association Test (IAT) found within this week’s resources. These tests use images to gauge information about biases that people may not consciously recognize. According to Project Implicit, the IAT measures the strength of associations between concepts (e.g., black people, gay people) and evaluations (e.g., good, bad) or stereotypes (e.g., athletic, clumsy). Reflecting on results of assessments such as this one are one way that social workers can understand how their personal experiences and affective reactions influence their professional judgment and behavior
After completing self-assessments in this week’s resources, reflect on the role of implicit biases in the consideration of diversity within your social work practice. Prepare a written analysis of the following:
Indicate whether you were surprised by the results of your IAT.
Analyze the dimensions of oppression and marginalization that might influence your future clients and their communities. Be specific in identifying the types of clients and the communities with whom you might work.
Explain how the concepts of cultural competence and cultural humility are relevant to social work practice. Provide examples to illustrate your thoughts.
Please include results of Implisit bias test below
Your data indicate what we call an equal implicit association between Marijuana and Dangerous and Other Objects and Safe.
You received this result because you were equally as fast to respond when “Marijuana” + “Dangerous” and “Other Objects” + “Safe” were paired together as when “Other Objects” + “Dangerous” and “Marijuana” + “Safe” were paired together.
