McGovern, Marguerita. (2016). Social work placement: New approaches. New thinking. Endings - finishing well. Book 7. Galway: NUI Galway.
Do you think endings and beginnings have a lot in common? The goal of social work placement is to ‘finish well’. The placement may have outdone all your expectations, or not. The practice teacher and supervision may have been exceptionally brilliant, or not. Whatever the experience is, it is to ‘finish well’ that is important. Routines, rituals, boundaries, recognition of emotions, are all essential. See the jigsaw pieces in the final Keynote and consider completing the jigsaw that is your own placement experience.
