Book Cover. Social Work in an Online World: A Guide to Digital Practice.Prior to 2020, the field of social work was limited in its adoption of digital practice. However, with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, traditional, in-person service delivery was dramatically interrupted. Previously at a crossroads, the field is now experiencing a seemingly unstoppable shift toward modern technology-mediated forms of delivery.

Social Work in an Online World: A Guide to Digital Practice, edited by David A. Wilkerson and Liam O’Sullivan, addresses this shift and charts the changing landscape from analog to digital practice in varied client systems, system needs, and system levels (micro, mezzo, and macro). Going beyond online mental health service, which is largely individually focused and synchronously delivered, the authors offer a map of digital social work practice that can be expanded to include support, identity, community action, education, and psychoeducation.

The Global Agenda, developed by the International Federation of Social Workers, the International Association of Schools of SocialBook Cover. Ecosocial Work: Environmental Practice and Advocacy. Work, and the International Council on Social Welfare, calls for multilevel responses to concerns such as forced migration, air pollution, ecoanxiety, and food and water insecurity.

Ecosocial Work: Environmental Practice and Advocacy answers that call with chapters that include theoretical frameworks and innovative tools. In this comprehensive text, the editors Rachel Forbes and Kelly Smith take a justice-centered approach as they draw on case examples to elevate multicultural and intergenerational perspectives spanning from local to global contexts. The book encourages readers to consider how simultaneously protecting the planet while meeting the historical aims of the profession advances the values and ethical mandates social workers abide by. Designed to foster critical thinking, the book offers hope and possibility for a just environmental future.

Book Cover. Black Male Youth Raised in Public Systems: Engagement, Healing, Hope.Using firsthand accounts from 200 Black adolescents, Black Male Youth Raised in Public Systems: Engagement, Healing, Hope validates the fears, anxieties, and complexities of these youth. Editors Sheryl Brissett Chapman, Ralph Belk, Jasilyn Morgan, and Krystal Holland, with Bruce Tyson and Omore Okhomina, point to the need for adults to “get out of the way” so they are better positioned to obtain access to understanding how these youth consider their life journeys and under what terms they allow a relationship with an adult, which is critical and necessary for their healing.

Specifically, this book presents alternative frameworks that invite practitioners to reconsider their approach and encourage academics to explore new avenues of inquiry.
