Skill Development for Generalist Practice: Exercises for Real-World Application gives students at both the bachelor's (BSW) and master's (MSW) levels a chance to apply their generalist practice knowledge and build skills necessary for mastery of competence-based learning. The exercises in this book, spanning all levels of practice, are designed to be actively used during class time and have been developed to reflect the diverse range of clients social workers encounter in various practice settings every day.
Authors Christina E. Newhill, Elizabeth Mulvaney and Bobby Simmons have focused on content, context and application that all reflect social work’s unique commitment to serving those who are the most vulnerable, at-risk, disadvantaged, and marginalized from society, recognizing the importance of understanding and respecting human diversity and achievement of cultural humility.
The examples and exercises included are proven with content examples and cases that are original for this work and come from the practice experience of the three authors. The practice opportunities within this book are field-tested successfully with students at the undergraduate and graduate levels across multiple instructors and in conjunction with different social work practice textbooks for over twenty years.
