Generalist Social Work Practice Summary Define generalist social work practice Generalist practice is grounded in the liberal arts and the person and environment  construct. To promote human and social well­being, generalist practitioners use a  range of prevention and intervention methods in their practice with individuals,  families, groups, organizations, and communities. Generalist practitioners incorporate diversity in their practice and advocate for  human rights and social and economic justice. The change process in social work practice. The change process in social work practice involves social workers using the  following eight skills: 1. Engaging clients in an appropriate working relationship. 2. Identifying issues, problems, needs, resources, and assets. 3. Collecting and assessing information. 4. Planning for service delivery. 5. Using communication skills, supervision, and consultation. 6. Identifying, analyzing, and implementing empirically based on interventions designed to achieve client goals. 7. Applying empirical knowledge and technological advances. 8. Evaluating program outcomes and practices effectiveness. Roles assumed by social workers in social work practice. Social workers are expected to be knowledgeable and skillful in filling a variety of  roles, including enabler, broker, advocate, activist, empowerer, mediator,  negotiator, educator, initiator, coordinator, researcher, group facilitator, and public  speaker. Social work practice with individuals, families, groups, organizations, and the  community. Social work with individuals is aimed at helping people on a one­to­one basis to  resolve personal and societal problems. One way social workers practice within families is family therapy. The focus of social work groups has considerable variation, including social  conversation, recreation, recreation­skill development, education, task, problem  solving and decision making, self­help, socialization, therapy, and sensitivity  training. The goal of therapy groups is for the individual to explore, in depth, his or her personal or emotional problems and to develop a strategy to resolve those  problems. The roles of social workers within organizations define much of what social  workers do. There are basic structural conflicts between helping professionals and  the bureaucratic systems in which they work. Community practice is the process of stimulating and assisting the local  community to evaluate, plan, and coordinate efforts to meet its needs.  Summarize the knowledge, skills, and values needed for social work practice. The value base of social work includes: respect for the dignity and uniqueness of  each individual; clients’ right to self­determination; confidentiality; advocacy and  social actin to ensure the rights of those who are oppressed; accountability; and  institutional orientation; respect for the spiritual and religious beliefs of others; and promoting social and economic justice and safeguarding human rights. Describe educational training for social work practice. The primary educational objective for undergraduate social work programs  accredited by the CSWE is preparation for beginning professional social work  practice. All accredited undergraduate and graduate social work programs are  required to train their students for general practice.
