Shelagh Larkin’s A Guide to the Social Work Practicum: Applying Your Generalist Training is designed to assist the student in meeting the goals of field and realizing their potential as a generalist practitioner. The text is uniquely grounded in the generalist field education approach, which considers the best of generalist practice and provides concrete integrative activities that students can utilize to develop and demonstrate competence as a generalist practitioner. The text provides a deeper understanding of the challenges inherent in field education and how best to empower students to navigate through the field experience while also addressing the gaps that can exist between the classroom and the field.
