The NASW Code of Ethics has been revised. The revised Code became effective January 1, 2018. Social workers have responsibility for adopting the revisions into their work. New standards have been added and others changed. Many of the revisions regard the use of technology in social work or “technology-assisted social work services.” Standards regarding the use of technology have been added in key ethical areas including: practitioner competence, client privacy and confidentiality, informed consent, conflicts of interest, boundaries and dual relationships, and documentation. Revisions to the Code of Ethics give direction to social workers on the ethical use of technology in their work.
