Please come up with a SMART goal
Awareness of self in social work practice. One of the challenging areas for me during practicum. I realized during this practicum that working with vulnerable people is not always about a bliss feeling for the social worker. Trying to find local low-income housing for families and seniors was a considerable challenge. Another challenge was when individuals were trying to access the Food Bank and many of them can’t get through. There’s also a language barrier since the Food Bank does not have a translator. Most of the time, I always get stuck in the helping process and wanted to do everything I can for the client that I am forgetting my own self. I needed to be fully aware of my strengths and weaknesses in terms of coping with stress and interacting with a vulnerable population.
