The Medium Is the Message: Development of a Praxis-Based Comprehensive Project Model in an Advanced Generalist MSW Program
Jones, Jill B.; Pierce, Dean
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v26 n1-2 p51-72 Sep 2006
We describe in this paper the evolving development and evaluation of a praxis-based comprehensive project model in an advanced generalist MSW program. We explain how this model provides students an effective and meaningful way to incorporate social work generalist principles into professional practice, develop expertise about specific clients and related practice issues, and foster professional growth and development. We present an overview of the model and describe its key elements, structure, process, and implementation. One student's project/process provides a case example. It demonstrates that the MSW program and comprehensive project model represent parallel processes, each contributing to the development of advanced generalist practitioners. (Contains 4 tables.)
