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.
