The 2017 revisions to the NASW Code of Ethics reflect the most substantive changes to the Code since 1996. NASW will host this official training on the 2017 approved revisions, October 25, from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm ET. Nationally acclaimed social work ethics experts, and Code of Ethics Revision Task Force members, Dr. Allan, Barsky, Dr. Frederic Reamer, and Dawn Hobdy will provide an extensive overview of the revisions, the rationale for them, and the implications for social work practice and administration during a live online broadcast. You don't want to miss this interactive discussion. 

Registered participants can apply for 2.0 hours of social work ethics continuing education credit upon completion of this free program.

Note to West Virginia Licensed Social Workers: The WV Board of Social Work has stated that “At least 1 of the 40 contact hours shall be in social work ethics. Licensees have the opportunity to use their own judgement in meeting that requirement-online, face to face, or independent study (for example, simply rereading the Code of Ethics as independent study will satisfy this requirement.”

It is the interpretation of NASW WV that registrants of this free program will meet the WV ethics requirement. It is not necessary to pay a fee to receive CE verification from the sponsor unless you wish to have this for your files.
