The social distancing guidelines necessitated by the Covid-19 pandemic have altered direct social work practice that until now has largely relied on in-person relationships. Face-to-face contacts and home visits have been replaced by telecommunications, such as telephone or virtual platforms such as Zoom, Teams, Facetime, and Webex. This workshop examined the challenges these developments presented to social workers in health care, community agencies, and private practice and the clients and patients they serve.
