1.0     SWM106 Psychosocial Health and Comfort in Social Work Practice Assessment Description

PART 1

Based on the client you interviewed for SWM106 Psychosocial Health and Comfort in Social Work Practice assessment 1, choose the most relevant policy / legislation from the list below.

  1. NSW Mental Health Act (2007)

Available from: https://legislation.nsw.gov.au/view/html/inforce/current/act-2007-008

  • NDIS Act (2013)

Available from:

https://www.legislation.gov.au/Details/C2013A00020

  • Closing the Gap Commonwealth Implementation Plan

Available from:

https://www.niaa.gov.au/sites/default/files/publications/commonwealth-implementation-plan-130821.pdf

PART 2

Answer the following questions, based on the SWM106 Psychosocial Health and Comfort in Social Work Practice assessment 1 case study and the policy / legislation you chose in Part 1:

  1. How does this policy / legislation define what health and wellbeing are, and what are the key concepts it uses to describe health and wellbeing?
  2. How does this policy relate to your assessment 1 case study – impact on your client, their carers, family members and / or community?
  3. As a social worker, what competencies (legal, policy and statutory responsibilities) are you required to implement when working with your assessment 1 case study client as outlined in this policy / legislation? Provide practical examples of how you would implement the tenants of the chosen policy / legislation with your client.
  4. What are some of the strengths and limitations of this policy / legislation? What aspects of the document would you seek to change, and why?

It is not required that you read the entire document, but you do need to directly quote from and critically analyse the policy / legislation that you have chosen in order to apply it to your assessment 1 case study client. Reading the entire document will give you an idea of the overall context and intent of the legislation, and will equip you as a social worker who will likely have to adhere to directives outlined in these documents at some point in your future social work career.

You must refer to at least six scholarly sources apart from the policy / literature chosen to complete your critical analysis.
