  2. Twitter as a Tool for Connection and Advocacy During Covid 19

    December 9, 2020 to 1:00pm

    This webinar, hosted by the Parenting in Context Lab, will present research on how social work faculty have used Twitter for connection and advocacy, before and after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The conditions of the pandemic have contributed to social isolation and stress among many social workers and the populations they serve. The role of technology and social media for social work practice are currently amplified. This presentation, drawing from data on hundreds of social work faculty, will describe how social workers can leverage Twitter as a professional resource for connection and advocacy.

    Participants will receive a follow-up email with information about accessing this Zoom webinar.
