Abstract

The coronavirus pandemic has transformed social work. Legions of practitioners who have customarily provided face-to-face services to clients have shifted suddenly to online and distance counseling. Of course, a relatively small percentage of social workers have been providing remote services for quite some time, as video, text-based, e-mail, and smartphone technology has matured.
