One of the invaluable resources available to me as I refine and redefine my social work practice has been the Twitter dialogues focusing on elements of macro practice #MacroSW. It’s true, I have abandoned TGIT for the fast paced, information packed and thought provoking commentary of social workers from around the country engaged in critical practice. Indeed, there is a revolution of sorts going on, as social work asserts its’ multi-faceted complexity and reclaims its’ roots via technology. This week, Karen Zgoda (@Karenzgoda) has provided many resources in the link below to engage macro practice discussions for students, and seasoned professionals alike. I’m thrilled to be a part of the #MacroSW Twitterverse, and honored to be part of this team. It’s really wonderful having a new set of friends and allies in this work. Technology, especially when used to empower for positive social change- is an awesome thing!
