Trauma Informed Care | Social Work Awareness Month 2019

Individual lives are affected and
people’s parents are being sent away and losing their jobs. Heartbreaking
situations–it makes you really want to advocate for those people who don’t feel
like they have a voice or don’t feel like they have the same rights that
citizens or Americans have Specifically, with school social work I find a big
interest in that field because I see that a lot of teachers struggle with how
to handle disruptive behaviors in the classroom or students who are struggling
and are withdrawn and you know these behaviors are affecting their schoolwork
and you know they’re failing classes billing exams not showing up to class
there’s usually deeper reasons to those types of behaviors so I want to be able
to assist students in the process because at that age
school is so important because their future you know and help teachers realize that these
behaviors are stemming from possible trauma or possible
struggles at home provide counseling I think the skills that I’ll take away
from this program is definitely motivational interviewing, how to relate
to clients, how to do lots of paperwork I had a client who basically didn’t want anything to
do with me or the Social Worker I was and just really kind of had to
give them time to break their shell I guess and just what time he actually
came up to me and started talking about his life story and completely had a good talk and stuff I really think
that getting that breakthrough with your clients is the most rewarding aspect
of social work the methods class and it’s taught me
skills not only useful to my field experience and my future work in a
Social Work field but also in everyday friendships and relationships with
people so things like open body posture and empathetic listening things like
that skills you can take as I said anywhere
