The future of social work: A bibliography

A message from Dr Paul Freddolino

I have just begun work on an annotated bibliography for Oxford University Press intended to cover references of all sorts that examine changes – both positive and negative – in the way social work is (and will be) practiced as a result of new and emerging technologies.  The search is for research studies if available, but also for theoretical and conceptual pieces; online resources including video and audio presentations such as Ted Talks; wikis and blogs; and other creative works.  Resources from throughout the world are welcome!

Please send your suggestions – including citations of your own and colleagues’ work – directly to me at

Thank you.
