Opening Options: Making Field Education Work in a Private Practice Clinic Setting
Mooradian, John K.; Knaggs, Constance; Hock, Robert; LaCharite, David
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v31 n3 p341-349 2011
This article describes the use of social work field placements in a private practice setting to prepare MSW students for clinical work. The authors used "autoethnography", which is personal narrative that explores the writer's experience of life, to describe interpersonal and contextual characteristics, as well as procedures implemented to conduct social work field education in a private practice setting. Participants include 1 social work field instructor and 2 graduate students who learned under these conditions. The authors describe and discuss reflections on the learning experience, and they indicate that effective social work education may be achieved in a private clinic setting.
