Description

Supporting Resilience: Integrating Reflective Practice in Field Instructor Training for BSW Students with Severe Anxiety

This presentation explores central themes in social work education, focusing primarily on Field Instructor training to support the challenges surrounding severe anxiety among Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) students during their field placements. The presentation reviews various components of addressing BSW student anxiety in field education by introducing a systematic literature review, conceptual analysis, and practical application paper.

These papers highlight the critical finding of the necessity of addressing severe anxiety among BSW students during their field placements, along with the lack of sufficient training for field instructors in this area. Learners can expect an overview of Integrating Critical Disability Theory (CDT) and constructionism into school policies, particularly in field instructor training, which holds significant implications for social work, encouraging crucial conversations and promoting inclusive learning environments. Furthermore, applying reflective practice, specifically reflective questions by Todd et al. (2019), engages field instructors in a method that supports students grappling with this struggle.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Review challenges and limitations of field instructor training, particularly in addressing severe anxiety among BSW students during their field placements.
  2. Review the application of Critical Disability Theory and constructionism in field education programs, including their implications for promoting crucial conversations and inclusive learning environments.
  3. Review Todd et al. (2019) reflective questions and integration into field instructor training.
