The NASW Code of Ethics is intended to serve as a guide to the everyday professional conduct of social workers. The NASW Code of Ethics summarizes the social work profession's mission and core values; presents broad ethical principles based on the profession's core values; offers specific ethical standards to guide social work conduct and provide a basis for adjudication.
NASW's adjudication program strengthens professional practices by providing an opportunity for systematic review of social worker conduct and agency personnel practices.
If you have concern that a social worker member of NASW is in violation of the NASW Code of Ethics, one of your options is to file a complaint with NASW. Contact the Chapter office at 907-332-6279 or 1-800-478-6279 for information.
