9:00am-12:00pm -Changes to the NASW Code of Ethics

Rapidly evolving technological advances, and the increased presence of technology in the delivery of social work services, have created some complex, challenging dilemmas for social workers. This challenge was met by NASW in the establishment of the NASW Code of Ethics Review Task Force, charged with developing recommended changes to the Code of Ethics to Delegate Assembly. On August 4, 2017, the NASW Delegate Assembly approved the most substantive revision to the NASW Code of Ethics since 1996. The NASW Code of Ethics now contains 19 new standards, with revisions to several longstanding standards developed to address ethical considerations when using technology in the delivery of social work services.

The objectives of this workshop are:

1.    Examine the key ethical considerations that gave rise to a technology-focused revision to the NASW Code of Ethics.

2.    Provide a comprehensive review of updates to the Code approved by the 2017 Delegate Assembly.

3.    Respond to questions regarding the changes.

4.    Provide practical application in addressing ethical dilemmas related to technology.

1:00pm-4:00pm - Surviving Sudden Violence and Situational Awareness in the Workplace
              An individual must use their own discretion during an active killer event to make a decision,
trusting their instincts, to take action to protect themselves to survive the situation. Those
decisions start with daily activities at home and in the workplace through the understanding of
“your” situational awareness of your surroundings. This course is developed to help you make
those possible lifesaving decisions.
