Reflection of professional practice in the field of social work from the point of view of students of social fields
The bachelor thesis examines the reflection of practical training conducted in the scope of the study of social work at the Faculty of Health and Social Sciences, University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice. The objective of the bachelor thesis is to determine the content and contributions of practical training in social work from the perspective of students of social studies. With respect to the objective delineated above, four research questions were postulated. Does the content of practical training correspond to the content of work as determined by the Faculty? What are the contributions that practical training makes for students of social sciences? Is students' knowledge of the content of a social worker's job sufficient? Do social workers provide adequate information on dealing with users of social services? Based on specialized literature, the first part defines basic terms used in the thesis. This part scrutinizes the terms "social work" and "social worker". In addition, this part provides a brief classification of social work methods, the minimum education standard for social work, which is the main tool for improving education in social work in the Czech Republic. As a future social worker, a student of social work should have both theoretical knowledge and practical experience, gained through practical training and supervision. Moreover, the theoretical part delves into the themes of practical training and facilities where practical training can be conducted. The practical part of the bachelor thesis makes use of a qualitative research, interrogation method and technique of a semi-controlled interview. The research set was composed of 10 students of the Faculty of Health and Social Sciences, University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice, whose field of study is Social work in public administration or Rehabilitation and psychosocial care of disabled children, adults and seniors. The method of cluster creation was applied as a procedure for data evaluation. The research indicated that the students were well aware of what the work of social workers entails. The students learnt to cope with initial concerns and negative emotions. The students' practical training gave them experience may rely on in their future life. Moreover, the practical training helped the students identify the target group they wish to be concerned with in their careers. The practical training pinpointed for most of the students a large number of weaknesses to be challenged by them in the future. As a positive contribution, the students mentioned unanimously the positive approach of social workers to clients and their work in general.
