The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) developed its NASW Code of Ethics in 1960. The Code is the most widely accepted and recognized standard of professional social work conduct worldwide. NASW is committed to improving the quality and effectiveness of social work practice through ethics education. NASW developed this web education course for NASW members to gain an overview of the NASW Code of Ethics, its relevance, content, and application across all social work settings.In recent years, ethics has emerged as an area of increased attention and significance in the social work profession. Social work practice has been affected by developments in technology, law, policy and global issues such as pandemics, terrorism, war, and poverty. Today’s social realities have complicated and, in some instances, changed the delivery of social work services in virtually all professional settings. The NASW Code of Ethics remains the most comprehensive guide addressing the values, principles and standards that direct the social work profession for professional conduct.The NASW Office of Ethics and Professional Review (OEPR) developed this course with support from NASW’s Legal Defense Fund (LDF), as a project of the Social Work Ethics and Law Institute, and the Aileen Neely Fund. Their support is gratefully appreciated.
NASW members who complete the course and pass the exam will receive 3.0 continuing education credits at no cost.
