Art & Science of Compassion

For my Reflection Oral defense I made a scrap book, which confirms (post- modernity or as my brother will say "mumble-jumble") that there are multiple ways of learning, knowing and self expression. I discussed points of convergence and commonalities that arose across the various levels/systems over my "Practices With..." courses.  I also talked about knowledge, perspectives, and skills I acquired, and what this means to me as a Social Work Practitioner In-Training. 

* This is where I began...

 * The beginning of my learning journey

* Social Workers are not simply "bleeding hearts". Our practice is both an art and a science of compassion...

* Team work!

* Person-in-environment, contextualize,  a matrix of factors to consider...

*Levels of needs/ Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs; Client-centered approach

* 1 degree of change; intuition

* This is where I am at now...humbled!
