Social Work Education is incomplete without field work. In a complex reality of life and liberty in North East Region, professional social work interventions are rare and minimal. The understanding of field work education is a contemporary reality for many social work agencies in this region. In this paper, I have captured my experiences of working as a student, as a practitioner and then as an educator who have engaged in the fieldwork program both from an agency as well as from the faculty side. I intend to bring in self-reflective learning and engage in a dialogue with the approaches, practices and perspectives while dealing with student's concerns during their field work learning experience. Any unintended shortcomings are regretted and expect the readers to be patient with the de-constructionist approach
