about this item

In a society in which social media technologies have rapidly permeated daily living, we increasingly rely on these technologies for everything from forming and maintaining relationships to building businesses and providing us with the latest news. This book considers the impact of social media on social work practice. Coedited by Claudia Megele, a leading expert on the use of social and digital technologies in health and social care, and featuring contributions from numerous well-known practitioners, Social Media and Social Work uses specific examples from a range of social work sub-specialties to provide clear guidance on both the opportunities and dangers of using social media in practice. Speaking to the social workers of today and the future, this book argues that social media can and must be an essential tool for both service providers and users.
