NASW Delegate Assembly Approves Substantive Revisions to Code of Ethics

New Code Effective January 1, 2018

On Friday, August 4, 2017, the Delegate Assembly of the National Association of Social Workers approved the most substantive revision to the NASW Code of Ethics since 1996. After careful and charged deliberation, the Delegate Assembly voted to accept proposed revisions to the Code that focused largely on the use of technology and the implications for ethical practice. The NASW Code of Ethics continues to be the most accepted standard for social work ethical practice worldwide. With emergent technological advances over the last two decades, the profession could not ignore the necessity for more clarity around the complex implications of new forms of communication and relationship building through technology. The new Code goes into effect on January 1, 2018. Training and technical assistance opportunities will be available through the NASW Office of Ethics and Professional Review and the NASW website. Copies of the new Code will be available by November 1, 2017. You can pre-order a copy by calling NASW Press at 800.227.3590. View Frequently Asked Questions for a listing of the revised sections of the Code.
