For those of you who are following me on Twitter, you have seen my tweets in celebration of Social Work Month. I wanted to add a unique twist to NASW’s Social Work Month photo campaign.
Read more of my thoughts about Social Work Month, the Future, and Technology after the jump!
The future is indeed here. As previously mentioned on this blog, there are so many tools out there that can enhance our practice and make us better in our ability to access resources for ourselves (e.g. assessment tools, self-care, respite) and our clients. With the hardware I have embellished in this forum, delivery of intervention has the potential to be revolutionized, as we can access it at our fingertips.
Technology is important to embrace for the future of our profession because without utilizing it’s full potential for tasks such as resource procurement/development as well as research, we risk stagnating and falling behind our counterparts in the medical (including nursing), educational, psychological, therapeutic and other related fields.

I’m proud of being a social worker and hope you hold the same pride to show it off!
