Advanced Standing MSW Field Experience
I served as the MSW field supervisor for a student pursuing her MSW while interning at NKCDC in Philadelphia. Weekly, hour-long supervision, served to support the student in implementing a new trauma-informed staff training and development program. Supervision contextualized the student’s work within the context of the knowledge, skills, and values of the social work profession and promoted the student’s growth in developing and achieving the goals set forth on her learning contract.
