Hello all, First, I hope this post finds you well. I wanted to touch base to see if anyone has transitioned their learning agreements and evaluations to 2022? If so, would you feel comfortable sharing? Thanks so much...Karen
Hello! We are looking for some help with our practicum evaluations as well. The 2022 EPAS training offered by CSWE indicates that the evaluation must include (at least) the practice behaviors exactly as written. We are struggling to know how to operationalize some of the practice behaviors for our field instructors. Would love for this discussion to go further, as I'm guessing many more programs are considering this right now! Thank you!
I'm also in the process of transitioning our learning agreement/evaluation documents from 2015 to 2022 EPAS and would love any ideas/insight from others. Michelle - can you point me to where you found the information about the evaluation needing to contain the practice behaviors exactly as written? I hadn't come across that yet and seems like I should review!
Thanks for your question. Our program is getting started with reaffirmation prep, and CSWE put together an online training through this link: https://learningacademy.cswe.org/p/2022EPASreafftraining
Within the training, somewhere in the section on Assessment (I can't remember where unfortunately), the accreditation specialists make the statement about the practice behaviors. I wrote in my notes, "Field instruments cannot include Not Applicable categories. Behaviors MUST be listed on the instrument. We must use the behaviors EXACTLY as they are written in the EPAS, can add extra things."
I will probably go through the training again before we begin our self-study in earnest, and can update this post at that time.
I just posted a new thread as a response to your question with helpful resources.
