First, take a moment to think about what is going on in your own community. Is there a new housing ordinance that the city government will be voting on soon?  Is there a proposal going before the school board that would impact families? Have you seen any notices about protests, marches, or meetings in your area? Identify a current issue or movement (e.g., Women’s March, Black Lives Matter, immigration rights) about which you would like to learn more.  This topic should be something in which you are not currently involved and therefore can observe without becoming personally invested.
Second, you will need to attend and observe a local coalition meeting, a community meeting, a city council meeting, school board meeting, information session for that movement, etc. Be sure to take thorough notes, so that you can answer the following questions.
Who appears to be in charge? How are leaders selected? If there are no leaders, describe the structure of the movement or organization.
Which stakeholders are represented? Whose interests are most prominently represented? Who appears to be left out?
Think about the six core values in the Social Work Code of Ethics. To what extent does this movement encompass these values?
Does the movement/coalition address an issue identified within the Grand Challenges for Social Work? If so, which one(s)?
In what ways do you believe the movement could be made more equitable?
If you had been hired as a consultant to help restructure, what goals would you consider to help create change? Are these goals based on best practices?
After you have attended the meeting, record a 7-8 minute presentation using Zoom or Panapto and share the link or upload it here. Create power point slides that address the key points you would like to share with your peers about what you observed.

Evidence based practice is essential to effective social work practice. You are required to (a) identify a current practice problem relevant in your current agency (LGBTQ+ Community Center) (i.e., working with resistant clients, engaging clients when they don’t talk much, having negative perceptions about your client, counter transference, etc.), (b) after identifying your practice problem, conduct an extensive literature search as it relates to your practice problem that provides you with a complete understanding of the practice problem.
Based on your findings in the literature, what did you discover that will help you address your practice problem? How might your research guide your work in your field agency?  After reviewing the literature/research and comparing it to the practice problem, the student is expected to do the following:
By Day 7
Submit a 1-2 pages that:
Briefly discusses the literature
Briefly identifies the practice problem (The agency has been closed the past year due to COVID-19 AND clients are having a hard time opening up to counselors over the phone & zoom because they prefer in person sessions) 
Briefly explains how the literature will be used to address the practice problem while engaging in the agency.

SOCW wk 8 Assignment 2: Application: Process Recordings
A process recording is a written tool field education experience students, field instructors, and faculty use to examine the dynamics of social work interactions in time. Process recordings can help in developing and refining interviewing and intervention skills. By conceptualizing and organizing ongoing activities with social work clients, you are able to clarify the purpose of interviews and interventions, identify personal and professional strengths and weaknesses, and improve self-awareness. The process recording is also a useful tool in exploring the interpersonal dynamics and values operating between you and the client system through an analysis of filtering the process used in recording a session.
For this Assignment, you will submit a process recording of your field education experiences specific to this week.

Examination of Health Care Laws
The health law field currently has undergone and will continue to undergo, enormous change. Among the multitude of challenges are legal implications that come with electronic health records (EHRs), payments based on patient outcomes, mergers, fraud, insurance disbursements, and antitrust laws—just to name few. In addition, disruptive medical innovations, such as biotechnology and treatment research, have created new concerns over ethics and privacy.
To perform proficiently as a health care administrator, the current environment requires that you have an understanding of key health care laws such as the following:
Stark Law.
HIPAA for Professionals.
HITECH Act Enforcement Interim Final Rule.
Emergency Medical Treatment & Labor Act (EMTALA).
A Roadmap for New Physicians: Fraud & Abuse Laws; Anti-Kickback Statute.
The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008.

Evaluation of How You Have Addressed Evaluation or How You Might Address Evaluation
Evaluation of a service is beneficial in determining how a program/service is being run and whether or not it is working the way it is supposed to. When someone evaluates a service, they gather information related to how the program is being run, such as whether it has worked properly, or whether things need to be changed (i.e. implemented or removed). Evaluation may be done through surveys or other measurements to determine the validity of such. This information gathered may be utilized as ‘evidence’ when defending the use of the service or program in practice. According to the text, when considering the use of evidence in practice, “practitioners generally first consider the proximal similarity of information and the trustworthiness of the source before directly translating research into their clinical practice” (Wharton & Bolland, 2012). Practitioners will determine whether the research can be trusted before moving forward with incorporating such into their future practice.
In my field placement, services are typically evaluated through client satisfaction surveys upon discharge, or one can determine how a program is being run through client progress. If the program is running the way it should, then client progress will reflect such. For example, sessions with clients often have a purpose, whether that is to identify their triggers and work through them, or offer resources and other information and encouragement that allows them to work towards achieving their goals, etc. If client notes reflect progress in their recovery and progress towards achieving their goals, then one is able to understand that the tools offered in the program are beneficial in client recovery. I would also address evaluation of the program through client satisfaction surveys, which would allow clients to address all concerns and share what has worked for them and what has not worked well.

An explanation of how you have addressed evaluation or how you might address evaluation in your field education experience
The evaluation focuses on the patient’s progress, goals, and if they need to be reevaluated (Scarnato, 2019). At Rolling Hills Hospitals (RHH), the term “Hospital” informs how the intent is to stabilize and discharge. Initially, it was difficult to determine evaluation at my agency. We assist the patient in creating long-term and short-term goals. Due to our setting, we are unable to follow up regarding long-term goals. Short-term goals focus on stabilization so the patient can be released. These goals include denying suicidal ideation for 48 hours prior to discharge, attending groups, getting out of bed, eating meals daily, and complying with medication. The doctors visit the patient daily and are knowledgeable about these goals. The doctor communicates with the social worker and both evaluate to see if the patient is stable enough to go home. A patient is stable enough when they no longer meet the clinical perimeters to be in the hospital. The social worker meets with the patient every other day due to their workload. I conduct evaluations when performing discharges. I can review how the client initially presented to the hospital, their assessment, and follow up to evaluate their current progress. If everything looks good, they are released.

An explanation of how you have addressed evaluation or how you might address evaluation in your field education experience.
Evaluation is the strategy to determine if the interventions we have used after our assessments of the clients are working, that is if what goals we hoped to reach have been achieved. It is also an endpoint activity that can lead to a mature client-worker decision to terminate professional relationships (Kirst-Ashman,  & Hull, 2018 p.308).  It can be done on the micro, mezzo, and macro. Evaluation can help to build the knowledge base of the profession through the documentation of the success of our efforts and increase both practice wisdom and publish knowledge (Kirst-Ashman, & Hull, 2018 p.310). Evaluation will hit its target if an evidence-based practice is used. EBP, according to Wharton,& Bolland, (2012), is  “a decision-making process integrating best research evidence, practitioner expertise, and client or community characteristics, values, and preferences in a manner compatible with the organizational systems and context in which care delivery occurs” (p.158)
Taking the importance of evaluation into consideration, as an intern, I  might address evaluation in my field education experience in the following ways:
Removing the fears that evaluation can bring. When it comes to evaluating my work, there may be questions like “what if I am not successful with every client. To remove this fear is to do everything possible to be successful while working with my clients (Kirst-Ashman,  & Hull, 2018 p.311).
Proper management of caseloads in order to be able to evaluate the outcome or follow up on my clients’ progress. If a client’s case gets worse, evaluating the process is already defeated. I will work earnestly to make sure that my clients are returned to the positions they were in before the crisis.
An evaluation may call for time, expenses, and patience. All these will be adequately planned to have a successful progress monitoring. I will also make sure that I get enough training in my internship in the use of evaluation approaches that are evidence-based to yield the best result Wharton, & Bolland,(2012).
