Social workers are increasingly using technology for service provision, communication, and publicity. At the same time, clients are engaging in more social media use and resource acquisition through technology.
Technology provides amazing advances in access for our clients, yet also creates new ethical challenges and concerns. This workshop will explore the evolution of the NASW code of ethics and increase your understanding of the 2018 revisions. We will also analyze the ASWB's 2017 technological practice standards. Through interactive activities, we will apply the code of ethics revisions and practice standards to real world scenarios. The class will help you maximize the positive aspects of technology, while maintaining safety for your clients, your organization, and yourself.
