Assignment 2: Case Presentation
During your field education experience, you will interact with multiple clients. As you interact with clients and review your process recordings, you might discover that one client stands out. This may be due to the services needed or a potential case history that interests you.
As a future social worker, preparing a case presentation allows you to present social work practice skills demonstrated in addressing client needs to your colleagues.
For this Assignment, you will submit a case presentation of a client you encountered during your field education experience. Review your field education experience notes and your previous process recordings.
The Assignment: (4–5 pages)
Create a Case Presentation that includes the following:
- An explanation of your agency and the services offered
- A description of your client to include demographics, presenting problem, goal, legal/ethical considerations, assessment, and proposed treatment/social services delivery plan and the inclusion of termination plans if applicable
- An explanation of whether interacting with your client demonstrated social work practice skills
- Identification of potential social work skills not demonstrated in your agency or field placement to include a proposed professional development plan
- An explanation of how preparing and engaging in a formal case presentation represents a component of professional social work
- Keep It Straight and Simple.
- Use keywords or short phrases primarily.
- Limit content on each slide to 7 or less bulleted/numbered lines per slide.
- No sentences, which by default means, no paragraphs!
- Never read your slides to your audience. It is insulting because audience members can read. You should be providing information in your oral presentation that goes beyond the content displayed on each slide.
- On each slide, share details that go beyond the key words/short phrases and provide depth of the content
- Use high-quality graphics for most of the slides. The visual images provide a depth of representation.
- Pick an easy to read font.
- Use enlarged font sizes for headers and text.
- Use contrasting colors for all of your graphics to enhance the visual imagery.
- End your presentation with a take home message, summation, lessons learned and/or image that highlights your presentation.
Remember that your slides are only there to support, not to replace your oral presentation! You will want to tell a story, describe the details, or explain circumstances, while using the keywords on your slides as a guide for the audience. Visual images also play a role in advancing the oral presentation so select high quality images, but never obtain images of clients and only obtain images of staff of an agency when you have written consent.
Your slides should illustrate your talk and not replace it. Remember, you are talking to your colleagues who are capable of reading. Why would you say what we can read? Use a take home message to conclude your presentation. Your audience should definitively know when your presentation is over by the way that you end it.
Please note that this is a master level Social Work program.

The timeframe of the adoption process varies depending on the circumstances of the child or children to be adopted and the family interested in adopting. Almost all adoptions follow the steps outlined below.
Step 1: Inquiry
To make an initial inquiry, a prospective adoptive family should contact DFCS by calling 1.877.210.KIDS (5437) or complete the Homes for Georgia’s Kids inquiry form. After initial contact, the prospective adoptive family will receive a packet of information from a local DFCS office containing details about upcoming information sessions.
Step 2: Information Session
A prospective adoptive family should attend an information session to gain insight into the adoption process and the requirements for adopting via DFCS. After attending the information session, a Resource Development Worker visits the home of the prospective adoptive family to conduct an initial visit prior to Pre-Service Training. During this step, DFCS asks that prospective adoptive families please carefully consider the information provided and their interest and ability to adopt.
Step 3: Pre-Service Training
When a prospective adoptive family has decided that adoption is the right choice for expanding their family, the prospective adoptive family will need to participate in the Adoption Preparation Program offered through a local County Department of Family and Children Services or a comparable program offered by a private licensed adoption agency under contract with DFCS. (Private licensed adoption agencies or Child Placing Agencies, provide orientation and information sessions, pre-service training, family evaluations, and placement and supervision services similar to those offered by DFCS.) The DFCS Adoption Preparation Program or IMPACT (Initial Interest, Mutual Selection, Pre-Service Training, Assessment, Continuing Development, and Teamwork) consists of 23 classroom hours of training. For more information about IMPACT Family Centered Practice (FCP) Pre-Service Training, click here.
During IMPACT training, a Case Manager will meet with the prospective adoptive family to complete the assessment process and to begin a Family Evaluation. The Family Evaluation includes home visits, information gathering (medical reports, criminal records checks, financial statements, etc.), and discussions about views on adopting.
Step 4: Family Evaluation
After successful completion of an Adoption Preparation Program, the Family Evaluation of prospective adoptive parents will be forwarded to the Adoption Exchange. At this point, prospective adoptive parents are now considered an available resource for a child waiting to be adopted.
Step 5: Pre-Placement
The time between being approved as adoptive parents and having a child placed in an adoptive home varies from family to family, although, identifying a child available for adoption might decrease the waiting period. During this time, prospective adoptive parents can also attend adoption parties and match meetings. Resource Workers can also provide information about support groups for prospective adoptive parents.
Step 6: Placement
If a prospective adoptive family identifies a child of interest or a county DFCS office identifies a prospective adoptive family as a possible resource, all have the opportunity to review detailed information about the child, and then agree or disagree about the feasibility of the proposed match. If the proposed match is feasible, pre-placement visits will be scheduled. After a series of pre-placement visits, prospective adoptive parents will sign a Placement Agreement, placing the child within the family. If a special needs child is placed with a prospective adoptive family, a Resource Development Worker will assist with an application for Adoption Assistance.
Step 7: Finalization
Upon receiving a release from DFCs, the attorney of prospective adoptive parents will file an adoption petition, after which a hearing will be held for a county Superior Court Judge in order to finalize the adoption procedure. The cost of this hearing is nominal and may be reimbursable when adopting a child with special needs.
