Final Project Presentation: Case Presentation

Topic: Child exposed to IPV-Intimate partner violence



  • Apply clinical skills from residency to case studies
  • Reflect and integrate residency material
  • Demonstrate key practice behaviors in a presentation



During the on-ground, residency portion of Skills Lab II, you will have attended sessions covering topics relevant to advanced clinical social work practice. During Skills Lab II, you join with a group of three to four students to present a clinical case. You will create your own case—this case will be a situation you have faced in practice or one you create. During the presentation, you and each group member are expected to demonstrate knowledge, awareness, and skills appropriate to a concentration-year master’s student.


The presentation should include the following:


  • The identification of the individual/family or group with background information including:
    • Presenting problem or concern
    • History of the presenting problem
    • Social history
    • Family history
    • Previous interventions
  • Your assessment of the client/family/group
  • Your engagement of the client/family/group
    • Specify the specific social work practice skills that were or would be used in your engagement.
  • Your intervention strategy (your intervention should integrate the systems the individual/family/group encounters)
    • The intervention should be a specific evidence-based practice.
    • Describe any consultation or supervision that may be necessary.
    • Be sure to include considerations of diversity and cultural awareness.
  • A description of your evaluation strategy
    • Include specific methodologies and measures.
    • Describe how your evaluation will be incorporated into future practice and work with this client/family/group.
  • Specific policy implications for the EBP intervention you are proposing


The presentation is expected to be 15 minutes, with 5 minutes of questions from your cohort (a total of 20 minutes for the presentation and questions). You should time your presentation to make sure it is no longer than 15 minutes. Appropriate citations are expected for all of the information presented. Without appropriate citations, the information will not be considered valid.


You are expected to use your advising/practice time in residency to create and participate in the project. Your ability to gain full points on the residency component of the Social Work Skills Lab depends on a quality presentation that demonstrates critical thinking and thoughtfulness. You will not be successful in this project by assigning out different pieces to group members and then integrating at the final moments. You are expected to work together each afternoon with your group on this project while faculty will be available to assist.


This is a group assignment with a group grade. Groups are randomly assigned on the first day of residency. If there is a problem within the group dynamics, part of the grade is the ability of the group to work out these issues and to collaborate and create a cohesive presentation.
