Life After Graduation
Generalist social work practitioners work in a variety of settings, using a professional problem solving process to engage, assess, broker services, advocate, counsel, educate, and organize with and on behalf of client and client systems.
Some engage in community and organizational development and evaluate service outcomes in order to continually improve the provision and quality of services most appropriate to client needs.
Generalist social work practice is guided by a Code of Ethics developed by the National Association of Social Workers and is committed to improving the well being of individuals, families, groups, communities and organizations and furthering the goals of social justice.
