Social Work During Social Isolation: What We Can Learn from COVID-19 and How Older Adult Communities Responded

NASW Massachusetts

Noon-1:30 p.m.

The impact of social isolation on physical, mental, and social health is an international concern. For direct service providers and social workers, especially those working with older adults, it can be a community trauma. Therefore, it is imperative that we address the impact of social isolation and trauma on the communities in which we serve and live.

This interactive workshop will do just that by presenting current research on social isolation and loneliness, the impact of trauma on communities to include not only social isolation but also social aggression, and brainstorming ways social workers can use resources developed in trauma informed care to heal. Participants will receive a copy of JF&CS' new guide, Creating Caring Communities: A Guide to Addressing Social Aggression in Older Adult Communities.
