The Community Care brand, an organic and thriving social care publication focused on the holistic goal of informing diverse professionals who are enthusiastic about deep dive continuing professional development and seeking new horizons through an ever-evolving digital booklet of employment opportunities, cordially invites you to a day of sharing annoying jargon.
Today, as part of our Stand Up For Social Work Campaign, social workers will be encouraged to tweet and Facebook their best, worst and straight-up mystifying social work jargon. Either from memory, experience or because you’ve just received a local authority governance email featuring the phrase ‘individual development strategic goals’ in response to your request for a parking space closer to the front door.
Use the hashtags #SWjargon and #StandUp4SW, and the best individual examples of jargon (pictures are encouraged) and most prolific tweeters will receive a lovely box of chocolates or, even better, the approval of people on Twitter.
Prepare yourself, the verbiage is coming. (‘Verbiage’ is jargon speak for ‘jargon’)
