                                                WELCOME

The Department of Sociology and Social Services welcomes you to its Social Service Option (SSO)
Field program, commonly known as field, practicum or an internship. Interns participate in an
experience that applies classroom learning to agency settings, in an ―agency – university‖ tradition that
dates back to 19th Century social work practice. Students gain a unique opportunity to explore their
interests in working with specific populations.
To facilitate the process of securing placements, SSO seniors enroll in SOC4716, Social Work
Theory and Methods, which is only offered in the fall quarter. Part of this course introduces
students to field procedures and this Field Manual. The manual is available on the CSUEB Sociology
and Social Services Department website ( http://class.csueastbay.edu/sociology/Home_Page.php ). In
the senior winter and spring quarters, students complete the SSO internship. Typically, students
declare the SSO as their sociology focus in the junior year, if not before, so they are able to undertake
the senior SSO field/internship sequence.
The Field Manual describes the SSO internship component and includes all of the necessary forms for
students and agency field instructors (FI). It is very important for students to complete requested forms,
as failure to submit paperwork in a timely manner may preclude the student from participation in the
field program.
The student, in consultation with the SSO Coordinator and the SOC 4716 instructor, will consider
potential placements and is required to have an internship placement PRIOR to the commencement of
the winter quarter. While it is the responsibility of the Coordinator to assist students in their search for
internships, the student is responsible for contacting agencies and setting up meetings with potential
FIs. Students must have a working, accessible email account prior to starting field.
Field internships can be many things – exhilarating, challenging, inspiring, exhaustive, and fun. We
wish interns and FIs a wonderful, rewarding social service learning experience.
Sincerely,

                                       PURPOSE OF MANUAL
This manual serves as a guide to the CSUEB SSO Field Program. Policies and procedures are based
on the Department’s Student Service Learning Program philosophy and the University Service
Learning Center standards. This manual includes an overview of field instruction, the curriculum,
procedures, and policies, as well as appendices with relevant forms.
                               THE EVOLUTION OF FIELD EDUCATION
Direct experience in social agencies has been a central feature of social work education from its
inception. In fact, the academic facet of social work began as a supplement to apprenticeship in social
agencies. The first academic social work program was a six-week summer institute for social service
volunteers sponsored by the New York Charity Organization Society (COS) in 1889. The institute
featured agency internships with a few supporting lectures, and later expanded to a one-year program
called the New York School of Philanthropy. By 1910, it was a two-year program called the New York
School of Social Work. Today, its successor is the Columbia University School of Social Work.
As most social welfare scholars declare, the history of professional education has been characterized
by a perpetual transfer of responsibility, from practice settings to formal educational institutions.
Essentially, the apprenticeship model of learning has been replaced with a formal, standardized
educational structure. Social work education proceeded in this general pattern but did not follow the
approach of professions that consign internship or field experience to the last phase of formal training.
Instead, social work educators were early defenders of experiential education, seeing field as a
concurrent adjunct to classroom instruction.
The responsibilities of social work departments within academic institutions have expanded to include:
imparting basic knowledge; preparing students for placement; and helping students connect field
experiences with classroom education. Thus, field serves a vital function for students allowing them to:
         1. Develop practice skills by applying classroom knowledge to real-life situations;
         2. Determine which evidence-based approaches work in practice and how they must be
            adapted to specific situations;
         3. Identify personal learning gaps for further study and training;
         4. Gain access to practical information that is difficult to experience in courses, books and
            journals;
         5. Develop skills in agency-based social work in an effort to understand professional practice
            in an organizational context and under professional supervision;
         6. Begin exposure to and practice with diverse populations with diverse needs;
         7. Formulate an initial professional identity and understand the use of self in practice; and
         8. Clarify career interests and objectives
The Conceptual Basis of Field
The history of social work education mirrors the history of the profession – both experiencing periods of
expansion and retrenchment or reduction. Field education is resilient and has withstood the cyclical
periods effecting social service professionals, agencies, and educators. This resilience stems from a
sound foundation and fundamental value that direct experience is necessary for the acquisition and
integration of knowledge and skills.
Conceptualizing social work students as adult learners who benefit from the application of ―ideas–to–
real–life situations‖ fits well with current societal realities. Present-day social work students tend to be
older and more experienced than students from earlier decades. Furthermore, the field has become


                                                                                                               4

more demanding, more diverse, and more specialized. Field programs, in turn, have become more
individualized and flexible.
Today’s field programs must respond to agency demands with fewer training resources while serving
clients with greater needs. Furthermore, students have increasing specific interests and competing
demands in their lives. The continued vitality of the field’s learning process and its ability to adapt is
central to why students consider field to be an important component of their social work education.

                     SOCIAL SERVICES, SOCIAL WORK, & SOCIAL WELFARE
At CSUEB, the undergraduate course of study in social services is based in the Sociology and Social
Services Department. Students graduate with a BA in Sociology, Social Services Option. Students are
grounded in sociological theory and research, while learning social work practice skills. The program
has a broader focus than Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) degrees, which focus more specifically on the
social work profession. BSW degrees are regulated by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE),
which requires adherence to its curricula components. The SSO and the BSW degrees each have their
own advantages. The SSO provides the student with a bit more flexibility in designing an
undergraduate program. It has a social work practice and sociological theoretical basis that enables the
graduate to enter direct practice positions in social work, social services, and human services, or
continue on to various graduate degrees. In general, social work can be conceptualized as a
professional practice area in the broader field of social services; social welfare is the study of current,
pressing social problems.

       process course designed to facilitate field learning. The seminar allows interns to clarify issues
       that arise on-site and assist one another in working through challenging situations. The
       seminar provides ongoing faculty/intern communication and problem-solving as students gain
       professional, applied experience. This class is taken on a letter-grade basis.
                                        STRUCTURE OF FIELD
Objectives
The main objectives of the SSO field experience are to:
   Facilitate an understanding of the professional roles and functions of social workers and other
    social service workers;
   Provide an introduction to mainstream, agency-based social work;
   Provide student opportunities to develop generalist practice skills by applying theoretical and
    conceptual knowledge acquired in classes to real-life experiences in agency-settings; and



                                                                                                           6

     Expose students to the organizational structure and workings of agencies through first-hand
      experience.

Responsibilities and Roles
CSUEB SSO Coordinator: In consultation with the Department Chair, the SSO Coordinator is
responsible for:
1.    Overseeing/managing the entire field program;
2.    Implementing principles of student conduct to ensure that agency expectations are being met;
3.    Serving as a direct liaison between agencies and CSUEB;
4.    Supporting all parties (e.g., interns, agencies) in their respective roles;
5.    Ensuring that students’ educational needs are being met;
6.    Maintaining knowledge of policy and practice changes;
7.    Developing and recruiting field placement agencies;
8.    Creating an environment conducive to mutually beneficial experiences for interns, agencies, and
      clients;
9.    Orienting and supporting agency-based personnel;

      process; and
13.   Mediating issues arising between students and their respective agencies.
Field Agencies: In the University Service Learning Program, agencies are referred to as ―Community
Partners.‖ The Service Learning website offers a great deal of information for agencies and FIs
http://www.csueastbay.edu/service_learning/ . Of particular interest are the Community Partner
Handbook and a section on Working with Students. Specific responsibilities of agencies are to:
1.    Identify a BA level employee, preferably with 2 years experience, to supervise interns;
2.    Provide needed support and time for this employee to provide supervision;
3.    Provide adequate work space, materials, and transportation cost to complete agency work;
4.    Provide liability coverage for the student while fulfilling volunteer duties; and
5.    Provide opportunities for students to work with diverse populations.

The following criteria guide the selection of agency FIs:
1. Entry-level training in social work or related field is a must, with a preferred minimum BA level
   training with 2 years of experience;
2. Knowledge of agency policies and procedures, and its relationship to the community;
3. Willingness to participate in training and other field events,
4. Commitment to work with the SSO Coordinator/Representative throughout the entire process of
   field education;
5. Patience, openness, and an enthusiastic attitude toward supervision of students and reciprocal
   learning;
6. Ability to give strength-based, constructive guidance to students, and

Agency FI Responsibilities: The agency FI fulfills a crucial role in the SSO. Without this essential
role, students would not have a supervisor and mentor to guide their experiential learning. The value of
the FI and agency’s commitment cannot be stressed enough. The FI provides practice, administrative,
and educational supervision. Hence, the relationship between the student and FI is critical to student
learning.
The following are FI responsibilities:
1. Interview prospective interns, giving the student and SSO representative feedback regarding the
    appropriateness of the placement match;
2. Assist the student in the development of a Learning Agreement by the end of the second week of
    the winter quarter;
3. Devote a minimum of 1 hour per week to direct individual or group supervision of the student;
4. Provide students with ongoing strength-based, constructive feedback, using clear examples;
5. Orient the student to the agency. Orientation should cover the following, if appropriate to the
    agency and placement:
          a. Agency or program mission;
          b. Client population(s) served;
          c. Organizational structure of the agency or program, (organizational charts);
          d. Funding sources of the agency or program;
          e. Policies and procedures including risk reduction, staff safety guidelines, confidentiality of
              client records or informed consent, required documentation, and record-keeping;
          f. Procedures regarding mandated reporting;
          g. The agency relationship to outside community structures or organizations including how
              referrals are made to/from agencies; and
          h. Role(s) of the social worker and other professionals in the agency;
6. Oversee that student is assigned beginning level tasks appropriate to a BA level—avoiding routine
    work below this level or advanced work more appropriate of masters level training;
7. Maintain ongoing contact with the SSO Coordinator or Representative regarding concerns or
    issues that arise with the student. Early notification of any problems is encouraged, as the
    University’s quarter system moves rapidly;
8. Submit a written student evaluation at the end of each quarter (see Appendix). Timely submission
    of these evaluations to the SSO Coordinator or Representative is necessary in order for the
    student to receive course credit. The FI’s cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated;
9. Attend CSUEB Field trainings or events in support of student learning and program
    implementation; and
10. Complete brief yearly evaluations of the field program as requested by CSUEB (either Department
    initiated or Service Learning Program driven).
Student Responsibilities: Sociology interns are bachelor-level learners who are capable and active
participants in the field process. To facilitate the active learning model, students are required to develop
a learning agreement which specifies their professional and educational learning objectives consistent
with the social work competencies discussed in this manual.
1. Actively seek, interview for, and establish a placement, working with the SSO Coordinator or
   Representative;
2. Be an active learner and regularly communicate with the FI and the 4719 Instructor;


                                                                                                            8

3. Meet in supervision for the minimum of 1 hour per week with the FI;
4. Complete a learning agreement within the first 2 weeks of the winter quarter with the guidance of
    the FI;
5. Meet requirements as specified by the agency;
6. Conduct oneself professionally at all times, including:
        a. Dress and present self in a way that is consistent with the agency’s culture;
        b. Introduce self as an intern rather than giving the impression of being staff;
        c. Negotiate regular placement hours and follow the agency schedule on those days.
             Alternative scheduling arrangements may be established if mutually agreed-upon by the
             student and the FI;
        d. Report absences due to illness or some other compelling reason to the FI. (Excessive
             absenteeism is just cause for an unsatisfactory grade evaluation);
7. Immediately discuss any problems or concerns with the FI or the SSO Representative;
8. Participate in her/his evaluation;
9. Complete all agency assignments and practicum coursework in a satisfactory and timely manner;
10. Complete the minimum number of placement hours (240) and submit a signed Hour Log each
    quarter to document those hours;
11. Arrange for continuity of coverage for cases/assignments over holiday breaks or vacation periods;
12. Successfully complete the LA tasks and objectives;
13. Submit all required field documentation to the SSO Representative; and
14. Practice according to the NASW Code of Ethics.
                                FIELD COMPETENCIES AND TASKS
The Department of Sociology and Social Services has put forth a concerted effort to standardize the
range of experiences of students in the field. Rather than impose a rigid framework, a set of
competencies has been developed that provides the basis for an organized, yet flexible, field
experience. These competencies constitute the basis for the Learning Agreement (LA), which is to be
developed and finalized by the FI and student working together. The LA defines expected performance
outcomes and field tasks upon which the student will be evaluated.
The concept of cultural competence infuses all of the practice competencies below – the successful
mastery of which requires an awareness of the multiple socio-cultural identities and statuses of
individuals, groups, and communities. Examples of the multiple identities and statuses to be considered
include race, ethnicity, gender, social class, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, mental and physical
ability, and age.
Field Competencies
By the end of the spring quarter of field, students are expected to demonstrate the five practice
competencies described below. Demonstrable evidence of each competency should be documented
and used as the basis for the student’s Performance Evaluation.
1. The ability to form professional relationships with a range of individuals, groups and
   communities. This competency involves the ability to establish and maintain professional
   relationships with a variety of individuals and groups, including families, communities, agency staff
   and other collateral contacts. Culturally competent forms of communication which are sensitive to
   and respectful of the identities of individuals, groups and communities are used. The student
   demonstrates the ability to form working alliances with individuals different than him- or herself.

2. The ability to effectively communicate in both oral and written form. This competency
   includes meeting agency standards for written documentation of case findings and preparation of
   other written reports, as well as effective oral communication through formal or informal
   exchanges. Students may be asked to make formal presentations of case findings or other
   information in meetings.
3. The ability to demonstrate professional behavior and attitudes. This competency involves
   behaving as an appropriate social service professional, the use of and adherence to the NASW
   Code of Ethics, the ability to utilize supervision, and the ability to accurately assess one’s
   professional strengths and areas needing improvement.
4. The ability to make appropriate use of agency resources and staff in planning and
   implementing interventions. This competency focuses on obtaining adequate understanding of
   the agency’s mission, organizational structure, policies, procedures, and funding; the agency’s
   function in the community it serves, and the role of social workers and other personnel in the
   agency. This understanding is then applied to effective intervention strategies.
5. The ability to actively and effectively participate in the field experience. This competency
   involves actively planning for field by developing questions and issues to discuss; participation in,
   and critical examination of the field instruction process; using feedback to improve performance;
   willingness to participate in activities appropriate for a bachelors-level students; and willingness to
   explore how one’s own personal values, beliefs, and attitudes affect the field experience.
Field Tasks
The following tasks provide students and FIs with a general sequence for developing and implementing
learning activities related to the list of competencies. Specific learning tasks will vary due to the nature
of the agency, as well as the student’s prior experience and skill level. These tasks should be viewed
with flexibility and as a guide.
1. Orientation: The student should spend several weeks becoming oriented to the agency and the
   specific placement, including learning about its structure, function, mission, policies, procedures,
   funding sources, and its socio-political affiliations. This includes learning about the target
   population and the agency and client needs. It is during this time that the student should develop
   the LA.
2. Experiential Practice: Next, the student should transition into the substantive segment of the field
   experience. During this time, the student should be closely supervised, with a minimum of one hour
   of supervision per week with the FI. During this time, students may be involved in: attending
   meetings; supervised interactions with clients; completion of individual assignments; case
   assessment; and documentation, research, informal interviewing, and other necessary agency
   functions.
3. Termination: During the final weeks of field, the student and FI should begin the process of
   termination, preparing for continuity client care, and evaluation of the student’s overall performance
   at the agency.
                                    THE LEARNING AGREEMENT
The Learning Agreement (LA) is a written understanding between the student, the FI and the SSO
Coordinator/Representative about the nature and content of the student’s field experience. The LA is
jointly developed by the student and the FI, and should outline the full range of field activities for the
entire placement. This written document provides a focus for planning the development of the


                                                                                                             10

placement and serves as a reference for ongoing evaluation of the learning experience. The LA is also
a basis for the resolution of any disagreement that might later arise among the various parties involved.
It should also be seen as a living document, so that the FI, student and SSO Representative have the
flexibility to add to or adapt the LA as the placement unfolds. Changes must be agreed to by all parties.

The Field Competencies and Field Tasks serve as a guide in drafting the LA. The student develops the
LA in consultation with the FI. It is the student’s responsibility to satisfactorily write-up the LA, and to
submit the final copy to the SSO Coordinator/Representative by end of the second week of the winter
quarter. The LA form can be found in the Appendix, along with a sample.
                                    EVALUATION AND GRADING
While feedback on student performance should be ongoing, formal evaluations occur at the end of
each quarter. The LA is the foundation and guide for student performance evaluation. The FI is
responsible for submitting student evaluations to the SSO Coordinator/Representative. Timely
submission of these evaluations is imperative in order for the student to receive course credit (see field
calendar for dates).

Performance Evaluations
Toward the end of the quarter, the student and FI should meet in order to discuss student progress to
date and the student’s future learning goals. The supervisor is responsible for completing the written
Student Performance Evaluation with designation of either satisfactory or unsatisfactory performance.
The purpose of this report is to encourage students to reflect on their experience and progress, as well
as to receive constructive feedback from respective supervisors. These evaluations are used to
determine the student’s overall grade.
The evaluation is designed to assess the student’s acquisition of the 5 field competencies and involves
the following rating scale:
 Area of Future Growth           Demonstrates          Demonstrates Skill            Demonstrates

The Student Performance Evaluation form can be found in the Appendices. FI narrative comments
are welcomed and typically quite meaningful to students.
Grading
In the evaluation, the FI is asked to recommend a grade of ―Satisfactory‖ or ―Unsatisfactory.‖ This
grade is based on the student’s overall performance and learning during each quarter. If an
―Unsatisfactory‖ is given, the supervisor should include a brief statement of the problems as well as
what the student needs to do to improve his/her performance. This report should be attached to the
evaluation form.

Unsatisfactory Field Grades
As soon as the FI identifies an issue that could lead potentially to a recommendation of an
―Unsatisfactory,‖ the SSO Coordinator should be contacted; at which time a meeting with the student
and FI will be arranged.
After the meeting has taken place, several outcomes are possible.

A. A plan may be developed to allow the student to continue in his/her placement, working to correct
   the performance difficulties. This plan must be acceptable to the FI, the student, and the SSO
   Coordinator.
B. The student’s placement may be terminated and the student will have to find another agency in
   order to fulfill the internship requirements. An unsatisfactory evaluation leading to termination will
   result in a ―No Credit‖ grade for the quarter.
C. The student may receive an ―Incomplete‖ grade if illness or outside conditions are significant
   barriers to meeting internship responsibilities. The student and FI should contact the SSO
   Coordinator as soon as such situations arise.
D. If the student’s evaluation reflects an inability to deliver social services in a competent, safe, and
   ethical manner, the SSO Coordinator, in consultation with the department Chair, will determine
   whether the student should be dismissed from the SSO. Such situations generally reflect
   challenges in readiness or fitness for the profession. These issues may include, but are not limited
   to difficulties with any of the following abilities:
        a. maintaining professional relationships with clients, colleagues, and peers;
        b. adhering to the NASW Code of Ethics;
        c. behaving with integrity regarding respect, honesty, and fulfillment of commitments;
        d. communicating effectively and appropriately at a college level;
        e. maintaining personal and professional boundaries;
        f. willingness to self-evaluate, as well as evaluate and modify practice;
        g. transferring theory to practice settings;
        h. assuming responsibility for one’s learning and providing self-direction;
        i. committing to culturally competent practice, respecting diverse cultures and lifestyles;
        j. accepting responsibility for one’s actions and decisions; and
        k. willingness to tolerate and consider viewpoint’s contrary to one’s own
Incomplete Grade in Field
An Incomplete grade may only be assigned under the following conditions:
1. If a student is in ―good standing‖ (i.e., not on academic probation); and
2. The student experiences events beyond his/her control (e.g., illness/hospitalization, accident,
   family emergency, etc.), which prevents completion of required field by the date evaluations and
   grades are due.
Field Placement Terminations
Occasionally, it becomes necessary to terminate a placement due to compelling circumstances. While
termination is an option, it should only be considered after every attempt is made to resolve the
problem/issue and complete the placement. In most cases, the decision to terminate should only be
made after a meeting with the student, FI, and SSO Coordinator has taken place. However, in some
instances, the SSO Coordinator may determine that such a meeting is not feasible or desirable.



                                                                                                           12

Although a student or FI may request a termination at any time, mid-quarter terminations are
particularly discouraged, as students generally do not receive credit for field days when placements are
terminated mid-quarter. If the termination is requested after successfully completing a quarter in an
agency with a ―Satisfactory‖ grade, a student will be credited with days spent in the initial placement.
If a decision is made to terminate a placement:

1. The SSO Coordinator will request a written evaluation of the student’s performance from the FI,
   indicating the student’s performance up to that point. The student’s grade should be indicated (e.g.,
   Incomplete; Satisfactory; or Unsatisfactory).
2. Both the student and FI are asked to summarize the circumstances of the termination in a memo to
   the SSO Coordinator.
After reviewing these documents, the SSO Coordinator will consult with the student and the FI to
determine the reasons for termination and credited hours (if any). The SSO Coordinator will work with
the student to identify a new agency placement.
                                      SECURING A PLACEMENT
Students are required to secure their internship for the SSO. The Coordinator or the instructor for SOC
4716 can guide the student in this process. First, students should complete the Field Placement
Questionnaire as soon as possible in the fall quarter and submit this to the SSO Coordinator or their
SOC 4716 instructor. Students are encouraged to seek placements with agencies already approved by
the CSUEB Service Learning Program.
    1. Go to the Service Learning webpage http://www.csueastbay.edu/service_learning/
    2. Click on the menu item ―Service Opportunities‖
    3. Click on the name of any agency to see further details
Students should contact these agencies for placement inquiries and have a current resume and
references available for interview appointments. When an agency and student mutually agree to a
placement, the student should email the SSO Coordinator explaining that the internship has been
secured, along with the name and contact information of the specific FI (holly.vugia@csueastbay.edu).
If the student is interested in interning at an agency not on this Service Learning list, she/he
must speak with the SSO Coordinator to determine if the agency is appropriate. The Coordinator will
need to conduct a visit to the agency for final approval. The agency must complete an Agency Fact
Sheet. Paperwork must then be forwarded to the University for processing. Thus, it is important that
these arrangements be started as early as possible to allow for the approval process to take place.

                                 RESTRICTIONS ON INTERN DUTIES
Students and FIs should understand that interns are prohibited from conducting the following activities:
1. transporting clients in a student’s private vehicle;
2. administering or delivering medications;
3. hands-on client restraint;
4. being alone in an agency facility;
5. collecting or handling urine samples for drug screenings or other purposes; and
6. handling any other medically hazardous waste.
