In this unpublished paper Winnicott decries the new suggestion at this time (1958) that those involved in social work are given a short course of ‘generic’ training to enhance their professional expertise. He argues that ‘generic’ is a descriptive term and that such a training course does not necessarily provide the depth of specialistion that individual social workers of many types and kinds need. He is particularly concerned at how the selection of candidates for special social work courses is made and how well they may be supervised in their work.
