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 mental health service users, learn how to identify risks, and develop and evaluate effective online safeguarding plans. A valuable resource for both mental health professionals and service providers, Safeguarding Mental Health Service Users Online looks at online identity, communities, and peer support; the use of apps, online therapy, and avatar therapy; as well particular forms of exploitation and abuse, bullying and aggression. Featuring informative discussion of key safeguarding principles and a wealth of case studies, it 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.

Claudia Megele is a principal social worker and the learning and development lead for Brent Council, UK.
