Home Visit Ethics in IGNOU MSW Field Work Training

Home visit is an important part of the social work field work training. If you are doing MSW/BSW course from IGNOU, you will go for home visit for collecting the data from your client or his/her family members.
During my field work training, I did door to door visit for data collection work. For the period of home visit, I followed various ethics of social work that were
·       Knock the door gently.
·       Say Namaste to the client / family members who will open the door.
·       Give complete information about reason of the visit including your introduction.
·       Remove your shoes/chappals/sandals if you are entering in the client’s home.
·       Listen the client carefully and collect the data.
·       Ask one question at one time and give proper time to your client.
·       Say thanks when you completed the work of data collection.

Field Work with Smack Addicted

While my social work field work training, I got a chance to work with the people who were addicted to smack. It was nice experience to deal with such kind of people.
I was first afraid but after building some rapport, I feel comfortable. Basically I was involved in taking the client’s history like asking their name, age, marital status, occupation, education, what kind of drugs they used, craving time, psychological and physical appearance, effect on family, legal problems faced etc.
After collecting the details, I motivated them for personal grooming like daily bath, yoga, exercise. I observed that some patients followed my instructions and there was change in their attitude.
