Skills and Values
My strong advocacy skills enable me to effectively assist in bringing about change and making a difference in peoples lives. I have strong organisational skills which include; tIme management, decision making, goal setting and teamwork. I am interested in gaining further experience within the Health sector. I also have an interest in working with families,individuals and groups. I value respect, self-determination and social justice. These values and the AASW Code of Ethics guide my practice.
My developing framework incorporates a Systems approach to practice, which provides me with a way to understanding that individuals both influence their environment and are influenced by them. I also acknowledge that the Strengths perspective, Solution Focused Therapy and Crisis Intervention therapy are an integral part of my practice framework. These approaches acknowledge that all people have strengths and given access to resources and supports they can achieve their life goals and solve problems.
