In particular, the laboratory, in close connection with the contents of the course of Methods and Techniques of the social service III, wants to contribute to develop some basic knowledge that can be summarized as follows
Knowledge and understanding:

- knowledge and understanding concerning the contextualization of the need and the recognition of its biopsychosocial nature
- knowledge and understanding of strategies for the detection and analysis of the need for social groups and communities
- knowledge and understanding of the different types of social intervention
- knowledge and understanding related to one's listening attitude
- knowledge related to the reading and interpretation of the different organizational cultures involved in the provision of aid intervention

Specific Objectives:

- analyzing organizational reality, environment and community resources and working in team with different professionals
- understanding role and functions of social worker in different organisations
- analyzing and assessing group or individual needs and problems; identifying and activating institutional/not institutional resources
- adopting and using adequate instruments and strategies
- understanding and mastering different types of documentation in social work
- managing the help process

ABILITY TO APPLY KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:

Program

The course of Methods and Techniques of the social service III and the laboratory of guide to the internship the program of studies will be carried out both in traditional form, with lectures (especially in the part devoted to the theory) and through discussions in small groups of students in which tutors favor the connection of the traineeship experience with the theoretical contents. In both training sessions, the study program will address issues with a theoretical-methodological and operational content. Specifically, the laboratory is a place for exercises that facilitate the student in the acquisition of the method of helping the people with the space for discussion, the acquisition of skills to be able to work in groups. Instead, the theory lessons will try to stimulate a critical reflection on the role of the social worker in the activation of the community as a partner of the professional intervention.

In the internship guide laboratory the topics dealt with will concern in particular:

- The areas of intervention of the social service
- The professional responsibility of the social worker
- Professional tools
- The documentation
- Work with the territory

2. The dimensions of community social work:

2a. the "operational" dimension (breakdown and preventive) - community work as a tool for problem solving -
2b. the "political" dimension - community work as an instrument for defending social rights and changing political relations;


3. The analysis and mobilization of the community:

3a. mapping of community resources;
3b. group work as a tool for mobilizing community resources.
3c. work with the family.

Assistente Sociale

Comune e Università di Verona collaborano per la formazione alla professione di assistente sociale. 

Professione  Assistente Sociale 

Pagina aggiornata il 18/1/2022
 


Stage e Tirocini

Le attività̀ di tirocinio degli studenti si svolgono presso strutture esterne, convenzionate con l’Università degli Studi di Verona ai sensi delle vigenti disposizioni in materia. Nelle strutture esterne gli studenti svolgono le attività di tirocinio sotto la responsabilità di un assistente sociale (Tutor-supervisore), appartenente a dette strutture, coordinato a sua volta dal responsabile del tirocinio presso il Corso di Studio.
In assenza di un assistente sociale, operante nella struttura esterna, il Collegio didattico, per quanto di competenza, decide, su proposta dei responsabili del tirocinio, in ordine alle condizioni per l’effettuazione o la prosecuzione delle attività di tirocinio degli studenti interessati. Le attività di tirocinio sono obbligatorie per almeno 450 ore.
Il Collegio didattico, in deroga alle disposizioni del presente articolo, può consentire a studenti che si trovino in particolari condizioni, in specie se disabili, lavoratori o impegnati in organismi collegiali dell’Università degli Studi di Verona, di non ottemperare in parte all’obbligo di frequenza alle attività di tirocinio, predisponendo forme alternative di tirocinio, anche tramite supporti telematici e multimediali interattivi.
I responsabili delle attività di tirocinio presso il Corso di Studio, anche avvalendosi di appositi collaboratori o tutori esterni, accertano la presenza degli studenti presso le rispettive strutture. A tal fine utilizzano un apposito libretto di frequenza per ciascuno studente.
Al termine dell’attività di tirocinio, lo studente deve presentare una relazione scritta al responsabile di tale attività presso il Corso di Studio. Lo studente elabora la relazione scritta, controfirmata dal Tutor-supervisore. La relazione finale viene valutata dal responsabile del tirocinio presso il Corso di Studio e deve tenere conto degli obiettivi prefissati dal Collegio didattico.


La valutazione viene attribuita al tirocinio nel seguente modo: sufficiente = 1; buono = 2; ottimo = 3; eccellente = 4 e verrà aggiunta alla media dei voti del curriculum al momento della discussione della tesi.
Gli Uffici della Direzione Didattica e Servizi agli Studenti predispongono la documentazione necessaria allo svolgimento delle attività̀ di tirocinio, comprese attestazioni e certificazioni.
Nel caso in cui lo studente partecipi a programmi di mobilità internazionale, le attività̀ di tirocinio vengono regolamentate come segue:

A – Lo studente svolge il Tirocinio presso la sede estera.
Se lo studente svolge il Tirocinio all’estero si ritengono assolti gli obbligo relativi al Laboratorio se:
  • -  lo studente aggiorna il proprio docente/tutor con brevi relazioni mensili da inviare mezzo mail, sull’andamento del lavoro svolto presso la sede estera;
  • -  produce una relazione finale completa del tirocinio svolto.
    La valutazione finale del laboratorio di guida al tirocinio sarà̀ effettuata da parte del tutor del laboratorio sulla base della relazione dello studente tenendo conto della eventuale valutazione da parte del supervisore estero.
 
B – Lo studente non svolge il Tirocinio presso la sede estera.
Se lo studente non svolge il Tirocinio nella sede estera e lo deve fare al rientro:
lo studente effettua uno/due incontri individuali iniziali con il docente/tutor in cui predisporre quanto necessita per l’avvio del tirocinio e nei quali verranno forniti materiali, griglie ed eventuali testi di riferimento;
invia brevi relazioni mensili sull’andamento del tirocinio che sarà svolto in Italia al di fuori del periodo in cui si tiene il laboratorio di guida al tirocinio;
produce la relazione finale completa del tirocinio svolto”. 

Per altre informazioni in merito alle procedure per svolgere il tirocinio, è possibile contattare l'Ufficio Stage e Tirocini.
