Evidence from virtual social work: implications for education

Waldman, Julia and Rafferty, Jackie (2006) Evidence from virtual social work: implications for education Journal of Evidence-based Social Work, 3, (3/4), pp. 127-148. (doi:10.1300/J394v03n03_10).

Record type: Article


The emergence of e-society impacts in sophisticated ways our day-to-day lives. In turn, this affects the provision of social work and social support to communities, including young people. The development and subsequent evaluation in the United Kingdom (UK) of a virtual or on-line social work service for young people provides an opportunity to reflect on how e-provision may require fieldwork and academic staff to re-think the way communication skills are taught to students.
