Generalist Practice. Generalist practice means that social workers must be able to work with systems of various sizes: individual, small groups, community, and organizations. Generalist practitioners use an eclectic theoretical base. This means that they are comfortable with several different research-based theories of practice and can apply these to best meet the needs of the client system. Generalist practice uses a problem solving approach (assessment, planning, intervention, evaluation, termination and follow-up) and it is driven by systems theory. This means that the generalist practitioner is able to intervene with multiple systems on behalf of the client. Generalist practice knowledge and skills are transferable from one field of practice to another. Generalist practitioners use critical thinking skills and practice life long learning.


Class Participation/Responsibility for Learning. Teachers, through course requirements, presentations and activities, provide opportunities for students to learn. Students have the responsibility to participate, complete requirements and expend the energy necessary to learn information and master skills. Grades are used as a measure of the knowledge and skill level a student is able and/or chooses to demonstrate during a class. Getting grades is not the sole purpose of a course, learning is. Learning requires the learner to stretch, grow and change behavior in some manner. Thus, learning will involve some stress and exertion of energy.
