Talking about Competencies
While adolescent policies are the same in every region, different areas of practice and different
geographical locations may have different issues. For instance, there are a few remote areas of the state
that does not have a contracted IL provider therefore the social worker would be responsible for
completing the above tasks rather than referring to a contracted provider. Be sure to talk with your
students about knowing the resources in their area and who is responsible for doing the different tasks.
