Prepare for the challenges and rewards of your field experience with APPLYING YOUR GENERALIST TRAINING. Drawing on her experience as a social worker, an instructor, and a field director, Larkin offers a practical guide designed to help you navigate the field experience with aplomb. Within each chapter, you will find resources that both deepen your understanding of field education and illuminate the gaps that can exist between what you learn in the classroom and what you experience in the field. Topical content conceptualizes information in the context of field education, while guided reflection questions and integrative activities enable you to integrate that content area within your practice experiences. "Helping Hands" icons, suggested field tasks, and Competency Notes in each chapter further support your ability to demonstrate your understanding of the core competencies and practice behaviors outlined by the CSWE EPAS as necessary for effective professional practice.
