A replication of a study exploring the utilization of computer technology by social workers
This study replicates earlier research conducted in the mid-1980s on the use and perception of computer technology by social workers. The major findings from both studies report: (a) social workers have a limited understanding of computer technology; (b) computer technology is underutilized by social workers; (c) social workers had little or no training in computer technology from the professional social work curriculum; and (d) social workers receive little or no in-service training in computer technology. The implications of these findings for social work practice are offered. [Article copies available from The Haworth Document Delivery Service: 1-800-342-9678.] © 1995 by The Haworth Press, Inc.
