I have been working as a case manager for the last few weeks and I have come across some great tech sites that Social Work Tech practioners can benefit from – I believe that these may help you and your clients as you help them to move forward!
If you happen to follow me on my professional Twitter account (aside from this website’s Twitter account), you will know that I was recognized for having one of the top community projects in my MSW Program for the year. I wanted to share what resulted from the start of this project.
During my last semester in graduate school, I developed an intervention I am proud to share with you all. It’s a self-care plan that I implement with my clients, as well as in my personal life. My colleagues loved it and many of my clients have embraced it. This intervention is tangible, as it can be taken home by the client to put on their wall or refrigerator – a practice I encourage as a form of buy-in to their treatment.
I have been working incredibly hard to finish my semester and I am two assignments away from finishing all of my work as a Master of Social Work student! I’m so close, I can taste it! Three of my colleagues and I went down to Greenfield, CA to interview a young woman from a center…
A digital tragedy fell upon one of my Social Work colleagues today and it broke my heart. I have been absent from this blog because I was working diligently on a process recording, community project paper, and first draft of my final-year research paper – the latter assignment being a casualty of my friend’s digital tragedy due to losing their USB thumb drive.
Tom Bihn makes the greatest bags ever. That’s not an understatement – I have looked far and wide, spend quite a few dollars on bags, and have been left with an empty crusted soul. That is until spring of last year when I got my Tom Bihn ID bag. The Unofficial Apple Blog brought Tom Bihn to my attention and it piqued my curiousity. I purchased this bag soon after and lived happily ever after!
This is aimed at helping professionals that work with individuals that are homeless, low-income, in a domestic violence situation or any circumstance in which the client needs a phone number.
The Need For Practicality
Sometimes, we as social workers have very good interventions that are sitting in our notepads, filing cabinets, or books we have purchased. Sometimes they are on other peoples’ blogs.
What if I told you that you could easily access some interventions quickly, easily, and without distraction? Without having to get up from your chair in the middle of a session to look through your drawer for said intervention? Without kicking yourself later that you couldn’t find the intervention?
Today is my first attempt at blogging more — specifically, in the middle of the week: Random Thursdays! I wanted to share with you a great (yet trivial) discovery of mine: I figured out how to type on my iPad’s touchscreen! One handed, apparently, is the way to go. I still wont be using my…
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.
