Address the following question areas in your reflective journal:
Social work practice approaches in mental health (800 words)
Reflect on your experience of engaging and listening in the triads. How did you feel? What did you do well and why? Which skills do you think you need to develop further and how might you go about this?
Describe your experience of practising assessment and counselling skills behind the one-way mirror. This should include:-how you handled the fact that the class was observing on the other side of the mirror; what you enjoyed about the practice; what was difficult; how you felt when you received feedback from the class; what you took away from this for future skills development.
Describe your experience as an outsider witness. How did you feel about commenting on fellow students’ practice? What did you gain out of this exercise?
