3 CEUs

Technology and social media provide opportunities for connection, but what happens after someone dies? How can we utilize technology to support our grief? Social workers are finding practice issues related to digital immortality, or what happens to a person’s digital possessions (e.g., online photos, videos, voicemails, writings) and presence (e.g., access to social media or e-mail accounts) after he or she dies. This presentation will assist social workers to understand the complexities of grief in a digital age, including practice approaches of using technology to support the grief process. Specific discussions around the use of digital legacies and advanced directives will be provided.
