Introduction and Alignment

As described in Chapter 11 of Social Work Skills for Beginning Direct Practice, there are many effective ways to intervene as a social worker.

In this activity, you will observe three types of foundational strengths-based interventions. Then, you will reflect on your competence in various social work intervention techniques and roles and consider specific practice examples. You will also have the chance to examine your preferences and strengths in intervention and also what aspects might need more improvement in your future social work career.
