The article titled: La création et l’utilisation de guides de pratique en travail social : illustration d’une pratique en contexte d’autonégligence (loose translation:The creation and use of practive guides in social work: illustration in the context of self-neglect) is inspired by findings of the Jessica Calvé in her final essay for her Masters in Social Work under the direction of Marie Beaulieu. It was published in the fall of 2017 in issue 146 of the journal entitled Intervention, published by l’Ordre des travailleurs sociaux et des thérapeutes conjugaux et familiaux du Québec (OTSTCFQ) (loose translation: Order of Social Workers and Family and Marriage Therapists of Quebec).

Both authors argue that Social Workers would benefit from creating or using practice guides to support their interventions. Based on evidence, these tools support professionals in their decision-making without proposing a rigid intervention protocol. The article presents "[...] the innovative approach to the creation and use of social services practice guidelines, illustrating it through the experience of creating a practice guide applied to the intervention in the context of self-neglect among older adults” (loose translation) (Calvé and Beaulieu, 2017, p.53).

For more information, please consult Jessica Calvé's Master's final essay.
