Abstract

The purpose of this research practicum is twofold. First, to present a synthesis of current generalist literature and to formulate a practice model which is both comprehensive and representative of current generalist practice in direct services. To our knowledge there is no single reference or source which in and of itself accomplishes this purpose. Therefore, such a model would make an important contribution to the field. Second, to develop a questionnaire which could be used to conduct a descriptive survey of generalist social work practice in Oregon. It would determine the extent to which practitioners in Oregon are practicing as generalists. We are interested in discovering 1) the relationship between generalist practice and the personal characteristics of practitioners, as well as 2) the relationship between generalist practice and the type of agency in which the practitioner works. It appears to us that certain agencies encourage ineffective, inappropriate, and uni-dimensional practice, while others tend to encourage more effective and holistic practices.
