Weekly Social Workings (3)

It's that time of the week again, and yes we're back and sticking with it. I've found it enjoyable to look for good postings rather than lazily skimming them all. This week seems to have a theme of field placements.

The 32 Monther is thinking about termination:

I think that was really useful because I was able to center myself and realize that ultimately my terminating with my clients is a really good thing. They've grown a lot and made amazing progress. And I think I have as well. Just being able to bear witness to their development was an honor in and of itself. I am so proud of every one of them. I am also really happy that they are moving on.

Be The Change is looking at field placements, and has found one that might actually be a better fit than her first choice:

Well, it seems as though my first choice with Kids@Home is not going to work out. It is too competitive and stipend students get first choice. So, my 2nd choice is looking up. It is with the Independent Adoptions department of Children's Home Society in West Palm Beach. For those that know me well, know how much I advocate for adoption. I want to adopt myself, someday, as well.

The New Social Worker's Ms. TJ found that she was appreciated by her field supervisor:

I missed a few days. And I was late on occasion. Sometimes I was so tired it was all I could do to get through the day.

I wasn't perfect. But in her eyes, I was exceptional.

That is all for this week. Have a great weekend!
