Reflective Paper

Reflective Paper


The purpose of this assignment is for you to explore your personal worldview and its impact on your professional social work practice.

A personal paradigm or worldview is a statement about how each individual considers people and the environment in which he or she lives. It is a composite of values—ideas about how things should be, and theories—explanations about why things are the way they are. It is important to understand one’s own personal paradigm because it influences all future learning and shapes how you practice. Therefore, self-awareness is an important element of this assignment.
