This paper intends to present an Unconventional Practice Placement (UPP) experience, carried out remotely in a small town located in central-northern Italy, significantly affected by the pandemic. Through this experience, a student supported a group of adolescents in their reflection on the pandemic and, more specifically, on the discomfort caused by social distancing and lockdown. The presentation of this UPPs experience is based on the student’s final report. A brief description of the project and the implementation process is followed by a methodological reflection on the possibility of applying the principles of Relational Social Work (RSW), even in a context in which it was not possible to meet people face-to-face.
