Advancing Core Competencies: Emphasizing Practice Behaviors and Outcomes
Nichols’ Advancing Core Competencies: Emphasizing Practice Behaviors and Outcomes helps students master the competencies and practice behaviors with licensing-type exam questions that apply to specialized fields.
This workbook builds upon students’ prior knowledge gained from previous social work courses and presents an overview of generalist practice and principles related to the core competencies. It provides a detailed understanding and explanation of the each EPAS standard and is followed by questions that test students’ (1) Understanding of Knowledge and (2) Mastery and Assessment of Knowledge of Skills.
Upon completing this book, students should be able to:
- Master each Core Competency before advancing to more difficult content and practice behaviors
- Apply the Core Competencies to realistic case scenarios
- Assess their understanding with the types of questions that they will find on their licensing exam
- Identify areas where more study is needed
