Purpose: The foundation of ethical social work practice is understanding the knowledge necessary to work with children and families. 

The aim of this assessment is an opportunity for you to demonstrate your understanding of child centred practice. You need to define child centred social work, what knowledge or theories inform this approach and what are the key debates in using this approach. 

Task Summary 

In preparation for the assessment: 

1. Review the lectures and literature in relation to child-centred practice. It is always helpful to engage in a review of literature rather than limiting yourself to allocated readings. 

  1. Ensure that you are familiar with academic writing and use resources posted on FLO "Topic Central" 
  2. Review the marking rubric to guide expectations for your essay which is available on FLO "Topic Central" 
  3. Demonstrate that you have researched the topic using references that step beyond the recommended readings. 

Requirements for the essay: 

  1. In your essay please ensure you answer the following questions consistent with academic convention. Your paper must be presented in the format outlined in the topic guide and please ensure that you use APA referencing format. This is an academic paper so please ensure your paper is written in the third person and includes an introduction and conclusion. Questions for your consideration: • What is your understanding of child-centred social work practice? • What theories inform child-centred practice? • What are the key debates identified in the literature in working in a child-centred manner? 
  2. Ensure that you cite the literature and include in your reference list. Your reference list should only include references cited in the essay. Please do not use websites are these are not acceptable from an academic perspective. 
  3. Submit your paper via the "General" module

The focus of this paper is demonstrating your understanding of theory and knowledge relevant for child-centred social work practice. It is an academic piece of work and therefore it is important to access and use social work literature that has been presented in this topic and beyond. Your work must be referenced as this changes your assignment from your personal opinion to a discussion that is professional and supported by evidence. The transition from a personal opinion to professional opinion occurs through the use of referencing. As a guide you should use one reference to 100-150 words that you write. With this in mind a 1500 work piece should be supported by about 10 references. This is only a guide, and this means that you can use more references if you choose depending on the complexity of your piece. The amount of evidence that you use to support your analysis is a part of your developing professional judgement and will be assessed by the markers.
