Competency in Generalist Practice

A Guide to Theory and Evidence-Based Decision Making

Elizabeth Moore Plionis

  • *Presents direct and indirect practice in alternate chapters rather than separate volumes, comparing and contrasting them in an easy-to-grasp manner
  • *Includes chapters on topics rarely found in comparable texts, including professional regulatory and fiduciary responsibilities, case and class advocacy, and service delivery to impoverished families and children
  • *Covers important macro practice skills such as non-clinical communication, crisis management, and the use of groups in policy, management, and community and social change
  • *Features flow charts, decision schemas, and examples of process recordings that vividly illustrate the material
  • *Incorporates both traditional and new theories into the discussion, linking them to technique and putting them in the context of direct and indirect methods at each step of the decision hierarchy
  • *Supplemented by a companion website that contains slides and a teacher's guide for download
