Spring 2022 Editorial
Supporting Diversity and Discovering the Virtues of Virtual Practice
Keywords:Editorial, diversity, virtual practice
In the Spring 2022 issue of Advances in Social Work, we are pleased to present 14 papers written by 40 authors from different regions of the U.S. The articles in this issue include a selection of empirical studies (n=6) and conceptual pieces (n=8). While the 14 articles cover a wide range of topics, two underlying themes include supporting different aspects of diversity in practice and in social work education and discovering the virtues of virtual practice. This issue begins with an important Letter to the Editor from four social work colleagues, Jessica Aldrich Strassman, Sara Schwartz, Eugenia Weiss, and Ann Petrila, who call all social work professionals to be prepared to address the re-traumatization that the war in Ukraine is having on people globally—especially those who experienced similar trauma from World War II and other major conflicts. The mental health impact of war trauma and forced migration, even intergenerationally, is something that all social workers need to be informed about.
