The intention of this practicum report is to provide further context into the understanding of agency involvement on the adult psychiatry unit at the University Hospital of Northern British Columbia (Northern Health). Adult Psychiatry provides a variety of mental health (co-occurring with addictions) supports to address service users' needs in Prince George, B.C. and surrounding areas. This practicum was a unique venture that included specific learning goals pertaining to professional practice and educational development in the area of mental health and addictions services. This report will include a detailed description of integrative practice that includes practice models/theoretical frameworks, values, ethics, strategies, and skills. This report is a synthesis of observations, research, and participation that highlights critical reflection, hands-on and insightful learning on the adult psychiatry unit within the social work field. --Leaf iii.
