Observation Proposal: Psychology 315 Chester McNaughton February 03, 2013 City University Observation Proposal: Psychology 315 In this observation project the observer will be observing an experienced marriage counselor counsel and assist one couple with their distressed marriage. The intent of this project is to observe techniques used based on the understanding of learning theories presented in the student introductory text Learning and Behavior (Mazur J.A., 2013) particularly the principles of shaping and learning by observation.

As defined in the An Introduction to the Profession of Social Work Becoming a Change Agent textbook, “generalist social work practice is defined as social work practice backed with broad range of training an primarily used to guide and coordinate service” (p.155). To me a generalist social worker basically practice skills to help aid families, communities, groups and individuals with their life problems.

Social work has been defined as a profession which promotes social change,problem solving in human relationships and to empowerment and liberation of people to enhance wellbeing,(International Association of Schools of Social Work and the International Federation of Social Workers).It is about enabling people to take action for themselves.Banks (2006).Thompson (2009) argues that part of social work is to do society’s ‘dirty’ work.He goes on to say that it involves carrying out tasks that the wider public will give a wide berth,and prefer not to know about or deal with,things like abuse,poverty,deprivation and exploitation.Some key roles and functions are to prepare for and work with individuals,families,carers,groups and communities,to assess their needs and circumstances.Social workers minimise and manage risk to self and others.A social worker is expected to be accountable for their own practice,having subject knowledge,managing,presenting and sharing records and reports with colleagues and other relevant professionals The skill to demonstrate professional competence by researching,analysing and using current knowledge to attain the best social work practice is also invaluable.As such,social workers need to have people skills to be able to work effectively with service users.As Parris (2012) states, being able to assess is a high skill activity
