Week 5: Intervention—Part 1

An explanation of how you have addressed intervention or how you might address intervention during your field education experience.

According to our reading, Garthwait, C. L. (2017). Chapter 8 (p.90). “knowing how, why, and when social assets tend to cluster together gives social worker insight into how to structure interventions.”

During the field education as part of the learning agreement as one of the tools will be to ensure, I am mindful about the learning expectations in my field placement.  It is a guide to  help me to developed as well as address intervention procedures along with my field supervisors who has  made plans to help me to be  well-rounded  with the experience that will  also help me  meet the learning objective as well  as how to implement Intervention.

One of the many program that is called “Smart Kids” a component is about “Intervention” which the program goal is to teach youth’ to be more aware of their own value as individuals and the uniqueness of other around them.

The purpose of intervention is to challenge the youth’ with brain storming games, Pantomime, Mediation and Relaxation. All these methods will be set goal for the youth to explore from negative feelings as well as to play a pantomime games to help identify different emotions. The youth will also learn coping strategies with a focus on deep breathing and relaxation techniques.

Another example, the Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club does in intervention with the youth’ that is too often faced with are threats to their stability and well-being.

 Neighborhood and community violence are proven to lead to social, emotional, and cognitive problems, and bullying both at school and online can have a negative impact on a youth’ state of mind.

 As part of a community at the Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club intervention is part of what the club provides; a refuge from the fear.  A place where youth’ can feel secure, relax, learn and dream about a better way of life.

Interventions are used in most helping professions across the board. When individuals seek services, they are usually experiencing some type of social stressor. A social stressor is an event, series of events, or crisis experienced by a vulnerable individual, family, group, or community that moves the social condition to the status of a social problem (Garthwait, 2017). Social workers should have a wide variety of interventions to assist in bringing back homeostats to the individuals or family. Depending on the theory used by the social worker will determine the type of intervention used.

Within my current field Cognitive behavioral therapy is use often, cognitive behavioral therapy interventions consist mainly of combating negative/false belief systems and retraining ones thinking to rational, positive thoughts. The way in which I address interventions in my field are to first I had to learn what the agency preferred. Garthwait, 2017, suggested these following questions to consider: What social problem is addressed by your agency?  How do your agency mission and programs address the social problem?  How is this social problem related to other social problems?  How is this social problem defined and understood?

Personally, I like to use worksheets, to help individual visual a certain intervention, for adolescents thinking reports are a great tool to utilize when trying to help them change their false beliefs. I have been able to observe other social workers within my field and learn new interventions. I always believe there is room to grow and learn new techniques, therefore I am always open to what other social workers have found beneficial in their practice.

Once an appropriate assessment has been completed, one can move forward with the intervention process. The intervention process involves coming up with a plan to address and change or eliminate the presenting issues (Garthwait, 2017). In my field education experience, I have not yet had the opportunity to address intervention. However, if it presents itself to me, I would address it by researching its effectiveness, seeing how it correlates with the client/s presenting issues and whether its appropriate and would like to be able to track how it is working or not working for the client.

In child welfare, there are certain forms of interventions that can be risky or life-threatening for the workers (Garthwait, 2017). It is important to be mindful of the risks of certain interventions and proceed with caution, even in instances where there does not appear to be any threats.
