Due: Week 6,  Monday - 5.00pm

Task: You are required to write a comprehensive risk assessment report and risk management plan. This task requires you to analyse information drawn from 60 minutes TV interview (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PTWBl5VcBxM)and to develop a risk assessment and a risk management plan. It requires you to identify key practice issues and to determine responses relevant to men’s behaviour change practice including safety; risk assessment; evidence-based responses; and professionally informed standards.

Procedure: Review the Assessment Interview video file provided in Moodle and, with reference to your learning from the unit, use this material to:

1. Identify key risk factors relevant to the client’s abusive conduct in domestic/family settings

2. Identify key factors relevant to the safety of the (ex-) partner and children

3. Determine client-related factors that are relevant and amenable to change

4. Note what resources might be present in facilitating such change, including cultural considerations

5. Identify a list of recommendations for risk management purposes

6. Based on your responses to 1-5 above, provide a basic set of recommendations for intervention with the client. Your focus should be principally on the client.


Your report should, where possible and appropriate:


· Cite contemporary published and ‘grey’ literature, including service standards, procedures, statutory requirements, and so on


· Reflect a coherent approach to practice consistent with relevant theory/research and practice principles


· Be sensitive to Indigeneity, difference, and diversity

· Formulate recommendations that are specific, achievable, and measurable. You should include at least five references in your report.

At least three of these should be academic references based on empirical and/ or theoretical examinations of the practice and safety issues. Remaining references may be sources from the grey literature.


Notes to Students Overall, this assessment item provides you with the opportunity to deductively apply principles from the relevant literature and link these to your current or future practice. All assessment-related information is also made available on the unit Moodle site under the ‘ASSESSMENT’ section. You will also find a link to a monitored discussion board designed as a forum for posing and responding to your questions relating to each assessment item.

Detail

Due: 5.00pm Monday, Week 9

You are required to provide an analysis of practice. Your submission should be presented as a practice report. The task provides you with an opportunity to identify and appraise features of a clinical interview conducted to enhance commitment to a tailored process of change relevant to the use of domestic/family violence. The interview you will analyse is presented on a video file made available through the Moodle portal for this unit. The task requires you to demonstrate appreciation of effective, safe, professional, and accountable practice designed to promote client behaviour change.

Procedure
Review the Motivational Interview video file provided in Moodle and, with reference to your learning from the unit, use this material to identify key features of the interviewer’s approach intended ultimately to engage, secure, and enhance the client’s commitment to and alignment with progress toward safe and respectful conduct in domestic/family settings.

Your focus should be principally on the interviewer.

Your analysis should comment on your considered analysis and appraisal of salient elements of the interviewer’s conduct in terms of:
• What s/he says (and does not say)
• What s/he does (and does not do)
• Responses to the client immediately and subsequently
• Alignment with or commitment to any distinctive practice approach or elements thereof.

Your report should:
• Where possible, cite seminal academic and contemporary ‘grey’ literature, including service standards, ethical principles, practice approach, and so on
• Reflect a coherent approach to practice based on theory/research and practice principles
• Sensitise to Indigeneity, difference, and diversity
• Be practice-focused.

You should include at least five references in your report. At least three of these should be academic references based on empirical and/ or theoretical examinations of the practice and safety issues. Remaining references may be sources from the grey literature.


Notes to Students Practical assessment activities are designed to reflect skills required in professional practice and involve different types of learning and assessment. They provide students with an opportunity to demonstrate a range of different skills, including ways of applying knowledge and attributes. These activities allow you to engage with and respond to scenarios similar to those encountered in practice experience. This activity provides you with the opportunity to deductively apply principles from the relevant literature and link these to your current or future practice.

Attend to the scenario carefully and be aware of its specific requirements in terms of length, format, structure, required referencing, and intended purpose. Sensitivity to intersectional issues (such as gender, race/culture) and inclusiveness should be observed.

All assessment-related information is also made available on the unit Moodle site under the ‘ASSESSMENT’ section. You will also find a link to a monitored discussion board specifically designed for questions relating to each assessment item on the unit Moodle site. You are encouraged to monitor the unit Moodle site and your student emails for assessment-related information.

Due: Friday, Week 12 - 2020 Overview
Create and maintain a critical reflection journal of your experiences of critically engaging with the content of this unit as relevant to the development of your personal-professional self in respect of your current or future professional practice. Please refer to the
Introduction to Critical Reflective Practice in the Domestic and Family Violence Practice Program at the beginning of this unit (in Moodle).
Intention
This task offers you opportunity to articulate a critical reflection journal. This is achieved by means of regular and consistent (at least 10) entries into a self-compiled journal. This task is intended to support and consolidate your learning by synthesising the range of competencies relevant to the unit.

New learning is often referred to using the metaphor of a journey. This is also a means of documenting milestones on that journey and gaining opportunities to incorporate feedback along the way. Competence in this self-awareness and the subsequent consolidation of attitudes consistent with practice in this work are assessable attributes.

Process and content
Your critical reflection journal should include and synthesise:
• an account of the application of your thinking and feelings related to practice in a process of developing knowledge, attitudes, and skills, as you progress through the readings, video clips, other content, and mini-lectures of the unit
• the impact of experiences on learning and self-management as a safe and accountable practitioner
• reflections on every-day-life experiences outside of formal learning that exemplify either collusion with or challenge to systems of oppression (involving gender, race, citizenship, etc.) that act to support domestic and family violence
• mindfulness of social and interpersonal phenomena that contribute to exclusion, silencing, and marginalisation that surround domestic and family violence or their opposites
• reflections on relevant practice frameworks, methods, and strategies, along with relevant professional requirements.
Format
The format of the journal is flexible and can reflect the cultures, idioms, and meaning-making that you bring to the learning for this unit. Your text may be illustrated with or by reference to artwork, audio, or video material, in addition to your written journal. You are required to make at least 10 entries into your journal of about 300 words each. Please consult the unit coordinator if you are unsure about the appropriateness of media.

You should include at least ten references in your journal. At least five of these should be academic references based on empirical and/ or theoretical examinations of the issues implicit in this statement. Remaining references may be sources from the grey literature or culturally-based sources.

Notes to Students Students enrolled in this unit are expected to at least have connections with ‘men’s behaviour change’ services through professional practice networks, if at all possible. You may choose to make contact with a local service when you begin this unit. Your journal may reflect your learning through that association.

Portfolio activities consist of different types of learning and assessment. They provide students with an opportunity to demonstrate a range of different skills, including different ways of researching, compiling and presenting information and acquired knowledge.

Overall, this assessment item provides you with the opportunity to explore and monitor your personal-professional progress and growth in relation to the teaching material underpinning the unit and link this to your current or future practice.

All assessment-related information is also made available on the unit Moodle site under the ‘ASSESSMENT’ section. You will also find a link to a monitored discussion board specifically designed for questions relating to each assessment item on the unit Moodle site.

This policy sets out CQUniversity’s expectations of you to act with integrity, examples of academic integrity breaches to avoid, the processes used to address alleged breaches of academic integrity, and potential penalties.

What is a breach of academic integrity?

A breach of academic integrity includes but is not limited to plagiarism, self-plagiarism, collusion, cheating, contract cheating, and academic misconduct. The Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure defines what these terms mean and gives examples.

Why is academic integrity important?

A breach of academic integrity may result in one or more penalties, including suspension or even expulsion from the University. It can also have negative implications for student visas and future enrolment at CQUniversity or elsewhere. Students who engage in contract cheating also risk being blackmailed by contract cheating services.

Where can I get assistance?

For academic advice and guidance, the Academic Learning Centre (ALC) can support you in becoming confident in completing assessments with integrity and of high standard.
