Creative use of two important concepts

Excellent article, Tarrell! It would be interesting to see if student performance could increase if the combination of these two subjects were integrated into student assessments and self-assessments during their experiences.

The fear of being rejected and incorrect has been with me as long as I can remember. So I stay in the background. I know what I need to do, but doing it regularly is tough. I have a career, not in social work, but I have an opportunity, at 47, to get free schooling. I am going back to school for Social Work. I want to be able to help people who need the help. Often I lose confidence in what I am doing. Am I going to be any good at this? Am I doing the right thing? Am I wasting my time? Other’s time? I understand everything you experience is a teaching moment, good or bad. Self-reflection is an important part of figuring it out. I have printed out your article to reread so I can remind myself to self reflect. Thanks for writing this article

Thank you Tarrell for this! As I enter my MSW field placement, this is very important to keep in mind.
