The planning phase of the social work practice framework involves a collaborative process in which social workers and clients discuss specific needs, risks, strengths, and resources. They then create plans to address treatment needs and safety issues with goals and objectives that are specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timely (S.M.A.R.T.) (Doran, 1981). The result of this planning process is most commonly a written document known as a treatment or intervention plan. These plans are sometimes included in an assessment (completed by an intake worker at some agencies), while in other programs, treatment plans are created and continually updated by a therapist.Social workers in a variety of capacities create and use intervention plans. The ability to effectively plan with clients is essential to the success of the social work practice framework.InstructionsIn your textbook, Social Work Skills for Beginning Direct Practice, read Chapter 10, “Problem Identification, Planning, and Contracting.”Review the assessment criteria in the grading rubric below to understand the grading guidelines for this reflection.Download the file Journal Worksheet: Treatment Planning.
