#ASYEngage: Exploring the opportunities and challenges of social work encounters with social media

The research will address the opportunities and challenges social media brings to the social work profession by documenting the experiences of newly qualified social workers in their first year, also known as ASYE (Assisted and Supported Year in Employment).

The social workers involved in the study will keep reflective journals or blogs throughout the year, documenting any significant social media related experiences – their own direct encounters through social media use, or issues arising indirectly from their work with service users and other professionals.

These newly-qualified social workers all hold different perspectives on social networking. Whilst some maintain active online engagement, others prefer to avoid social media completely. The study will acknowledge and incorporate these different attitudes and potentially related consequences to practice.
