It will also show that I reflect on my experiences of using knowledge and skills and how they have helped my own social work practice. I will evaluate the relevance and impact the areas had on my practice and how it helped me develop a better understanding of the individuals I worked with. I’ll reflect on how my learning from these experiences has helped my understanding of service users and the contexts in which they live. I will use Kolb’s (1984) theory of experiential learning i.e. the cycle of learning to enable me to develop my own understanding and as a reflective practitioner I can link this with Schon’s (1983) concepts of reflecting in action and reflecting on action to help improve my actions and professional practice and show that I evaluate my experiences and integrate it to theory and knowledge in supervision (Aids to Practice cards, Values and Ethics, p112).

The Ethical Lens Inventory also implies that my blind spot is that I believe that motive justifies method. It says that I may unintentionally cause people upset and pain because I am so focused on my good motive, and that I tend to believe that ethnics is a set of universal rules that everyone should follow, just as I do. I believe that my strengths are that I will always perform my duties to satisfy the goal of my employer on my own and without supervision. I’m not dependent on a team or group.

Some people, especially psychologists, believe that the best way to give advice to our friends, family and other people is to identify what they want and then advising them about how to reach that they desire. However, other people, including psychoanalysts, think that it is not necessary to find out the interests and goals of the people who are asking us an advice. As you can see, this issue is a controversial one but a closer examination reveals that identifying what people want is mandatory in order to give a good advice. My reasons are the following: First, if we don’t identify what people want, probably we will give a wrong advice. In other words, if we don’t consider the motivations of these people who look for an advice, probably we will advise them based on our personal desires and goals, which probably may be the opposite of these people want.
Also when the partner made weak amends, self-concept clarity and self-respect went down over time as well, damaging mental health. (Luchie et al.) I have to agree with this experiment.

I am sometimes content with too little and have unrealistic role expectations, relying too much on the virtues related to someone’s role, absent to the fact that others can fail regardless of their part in the project. However, I am very self-reliant and posses accountability.

Also, as long as my decisions fill my principle, I feel totally comfortable in making them. My principle is that the ethical decisions I make must be in my own interest, without causing any harm to the others. Obviously, some may consider this as selfish and not caring for other people. I would not think of it like that, as in reality, we all ought consider our interests before others'. To me it is unethical to betray myself and treat myself worse than the way I should.
