Social Work and Technology Standards are officially updated (!)

If you’re interested in how social workers engage with technology, you’re probably aware that the practice standards on this subject needed some updating. The previous statement from NASW was published in 2005. This week, the official update was released. Find a comfortable chair, block off some time, and read them here. For what it’s worth, I’ll provide a few thoughts in this space shortly.
