COVID-19 has shown that social workers and social care practitioners can use social media and digital technologies in powerful ways to keep in touch and support children and families.

However, there are many ethical and practical challenges and limitations to online connections and communications.

Therefore, this webinar examines new and emerging online risks and harm as well as digital resilience and how these can be assessed and used to enhance relationship-based practice and safeguard children and young people online.

This webinar also considers the lockdown and the easing of the lockdown and its implications for safeguarding children and families online.

Claudia Megele is the National Chair of the Principal Children and Families Social Worker Network. She is also a Fellow of National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and the author of “Safeguarding Children and Young People Online”, “Social Media and Social Work: Implications and opportunities for practice” as well as “Psychosocial and Relationship-based Practice”.

Dr Peter Buzzi is the director of the Research and Management Consultancy Centre and the Safeguarding Research Centre. He is also the national research lead for the Principal Children and Families Social Worker (PCFSW) Network’s digital practice and online safeguarding research and practice development project.
