The most recent edition of NASW’s Code of Ethics has been in effect since January 1, 2018. While the 1996 version essentially remained intact, this version has several amended and new standards, particularly addressing technology in practice. This code governs practice of NASW members and is also viewed as the guide for all practicing social workers. This workshop covers changes in the new Code and describes ethical situations that arise as a result of our increasingly inter-connected, virtual, and technological practice contexts.
Upon completion of this session, participants should be able to:
• Identify new and revised ethical standards
• Describe technology-related practice issues addressed by the revised Code
• Discuss relationships between the Code and privacy, confidentiality, informed consent, and social media use laws and policies
