Professional Ethics and Standards

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. 

Adjudication and Professional Review

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.
