Reflection on Practice 1 SE

Lector: FH-Prof. Mag. Dr. Alexander Brunner, Mag.a Lydia Leitl, BA, DSAin Verena Scharf, MA

1.5SWS
2ECTS

Lecture contents

In this module, the students acquire an understanding of the conditions and objectives of ‘reflection' and collectively generate group rules for the formation of the module. Self-perception and external perception are addressed, and team and cooperation skills strengthened.
Furthermore, students acquire fundamental knowledge about selected social organisations i.e. relating to their history, goals, tasks, legal conditions, financial foundations, professional repertoire of methods, organisational structure and documentation. Current questions by selected institutions, as well as concrete practice experience are reflected, and related to theory and practice where appropriate. This is also done in preparation for a 4-week long work placement, which full time students complete at the beginning of the 2nd semester and relates to the practice orientation days for part time students in the 1st/2nd semester. Questions about reconciling studies, work placement and professional motivation are discussed. The different roles of work placement managers and interns are discussed and explained.

Lecture contents

Students engage with learning and educational concepts for adults and learn about methodological approaches to biography-oriented Social Work.
They learn about fundamental results from life-situation analysis and age-specific transitions, as well as related coping challenges while taking into consideration age/class/social background and gender specific and ethnic characteristics and conditions.
Transitions, life phases or stages of life, critical life events with their respective challenges, possibilities and problems are central here. At the same time, coping support, the use of resources and the release of emancipatory potentials are important within biography-oriented Social Work.
