Though the Internet offers benefits such as connectivity, easily available knowledge, and diverse entertainment, digital technologies also come with a host of dangers. In this evidence-informed, practical guide for social workers, Claudia Megele draws on the latest research, theory, and examples from real-life practice to help social service providers develop an understanding of e-safety and online safeguarding for adults, learn how to identify risks, and develop and evaluate effective online safeguarding plans. Addressing a variety of risks and tools of particular relevance to adult service users, this book explores topics such as online gaming and gambling, radicalization, exploitation, and crime. Featuring informative discussion of key safeguarding principles and a wealth of case studies, Safeguarding Adults Online will be an essential reference for social work students and experienced practitioners alike. By helping social workers to consider, mitigate, and manage online risks, as well as to take advantage of online tools, Megele enables them to successfully navigate the swiftly changing landscape of digital technologies.
