Case Management Simulations

Education & Training

The purposes of education is to prepare competent and effective professionals, to advance knowledge, and to provide leadership in the development of service delivery systems.

 

Simulation models are commonly used for creating authentic learning environments. This approach is established on the assumption that classroom and field training activities should be made to be as similar and as authentic as possible. Our simulation pedagogy is tailored specifically to students and social services professionals in Child Welfare, but can be adapted to generalist practice.

 

The Children's Resource Center (CRC) has contributed toward the curriculum development and the National Council on Crime and Delinquency (NCCD) has been gracious in allowing student interns the ability to use Structured Decision Making (SDM) as a component of their simulation training. This aides students in understanding explanatory assessment theories while conceptualizing and applying them to the actual field assessment tool they will use once employed.    


Hard professional skills like organization and case management have received less attention at the university level. The application allows for skill drills more closely mirroring that which is experienced during employment while correlating these skills to application of theory across multiple vignettes.

 

The simulation model can also be used for agency specific training and pairs well with engagement and assessment sims.

“This was a hard assignment! To be honest, I didn’t like it at first cause it made me realize my skills were not at the level I thought they were. On a scale of 1 to 10, I was a 1 at the beginning of the quarter, but I swore I was a 7. I’d put myself at a 5 now going through the sim.”
