National Association of Social Workers Code of Ethics 2021

About the Course:

Professional ethics are at the core of social work. The profession has an obligation to articulate its basic values, ethical principles, and ethical standards. The NASW Code of Ethics sets forth these values, principles, and standards to guide social workers’ conduct. The Code is relevant to all social workers and social work students, regardless of their professional functions, the settings in which they work, or the populations they serve.

This course is based on the National Association of Social Workers Code of Ethics 2021 created by the NASW Delegate Assembly in 2021.
