This paper explores the concept of generalist-advanced generalist in practice and in education by discusing some of the tenets of generalist practice, advancing a paradigm for framing the BSW/MSW educational continuum, and presenting one possible curriculum design--including practice outcomes, course content and sequencing issues--to articulate an educational continuum in schools of social work that offer both the BSW and MSW degrees.
