NET 2018 Conference: Good can come out of it: Supporting practice staff in the wake of Social Work student placement failure

Based upon research into the impact of student placement failure on the practice-based staff within social and health care this presentation outlines the implementation and evaluation of a theoretically grounded model for post-failure support. This model aims to: provide the opportunity for staff to reflect and bring closure to the failure event; promote positive coping as outlined within transactional models of stress (Lazarus and Folkman 1984; Carver 1997); provide feedback to the university regarding student failure procedures; and contribute to a culture of confidence in failing students within the wider placement community.
