Communication Technology Integration into Social Work Practice

Angela N. Bullock, Alex D. Colvin

Abstract


The uses for communication technology continue to grow in the United States. Technology is changing how people collect and share information and is reshaping how people interact with one another. As a result of this transformation, the use of technology has evolved in social work practice. Communication technology is being incorporated into traditional social work practice for administrative and therapeutic purposes. This article will examine a theoretically based direction for the future creation of technologically driven interventions in social work practice and address both the challenges and opportunities communication technology poses for social work practice.
