The use of technology plays an essential role in the social work profession, and it goes beyond the pure understanding of its functionality. Technology is one of the ways social workers can deliver their services and having a precise knowledge of its standards of practice is a must. It is essential to identify and mitigate any potential risk with the use of technology in social work practice, and this workshop will help attendees in doing so.  


Join us in a new risk management workshop from the Standards for Technology published by NASW, CSWE, ASWB and CSWA in 2017.


This workshop will give social workers a peace of mind not only through malpractice solutions but also by providing relevant content and educational information that will help mitigate any potential risk during their social work journey with technology.



With this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize the uses of technology in social work practice and related disciplines
  • Become familiar with the use of technology standards in professional practice
  • Evaluate the use of technology in their own practice
  • Enter in a free raffle for a gift card!
