The Common Factors Model for Generalist Practice presents critical practice conditions and processes that research has suggested produce the most effective outcomes. These practice conditions include attributes of the social worker, clients, working relationships, supporting networks that influence and enable work, and the essential strategies social workers and clients engage in to facilitate change.
