Evaluation of Learning Agreement
When filling in my learning agreement, I thought about the course objectives as well
as the impact of Pleasantville Cottages in my practice. I reflected on my initial expectations
and thought process and things that have changed over time after being exposed to the field
(Carpenter, 2016). This was important to me as it was a signifier of my individual growth in
the profession.
I also tried to look at any value I offered the institution to assess my impact on the
institution. Going in, I anticipated improving my observation skills to learn more than what
was being said. I also anticipated improving my critical thinking skills while still being
guided by the organizational policies of the institution.
Based on that, my evaluation was mostly positive with the answers ranging between
4’s and 5’s. At an individual level, I learned how to customize treatment plans to fit the needs
of a client. For group and family dynamics, a strength-based approach proved to be the best
but all these had to be done within the framework of ethics as dictated by NASW as well as
organizational policies of Pleasantville.
Therefore, the need to be one with the Pleasantville team as well as other stakeholders
in the profession acted as a great learning resource and open communication channels
enabled me to interact with as many people and learn from them all. Lastly, I saw the role
community plays in the treatment of a patient and how to use the community as a tool for the
well-being of a client (Samson, 2016).
The main take away from my evaluation led me to the core of social work whereby
the client needs to come first. As a result, one has to learn past their biases and work with
other people as well to ensure that the client's needs are being met. Communication is at the
very center of it all and communication skills are paramount for every social worker.
