The faculty of the Brescia University Social Work Program is committed to the provision of an educational experience that will train professional baccalaureate level social workers in generalist practice. Generalist practice is grounded in the liberal arts and the person and
environment construct. To promote human and social well being, generalist practitioners use a
range of prevention and intervention methods in their practice with individuals, families, groups, organizations,and communities. The generalist practitioner identifies with the social work profession and applies ethical principles and critical thinking in practice. Generalist practitioners incorporate diversity in their practice and advocate for human rights and social and economic justice. They recognize, support,and build on the strengths and resiliency of all human beings. They engage in research informed practice and are proactive in responding to the impact of context on professional practice. BSW practice incorporates all of the core competencies
outlined by the CSWE EPAS 2008.
