Social Media and Social Work (2022-present)

About the study

This research study examines social workers', probation officers' and social work students' social media usage and the impact of social media abuse and online harassment. This project grew out of our ongoing engagement with front-line practitioners and from the @UCCsocialwork Online Social Work Practice Initiative.
