Technology has changed our world in a multitude of ways. The 2018 NASW Code of Ethics began to address some of the practice implications related to technological advances. This presentation will review and examine these updated standards. Complex case scenarios related to technology used in social work practice will be examined through the lens of both ethics and professional boundaries. Multiple models for ethical problem solving will be introduced, compared and contrasted, and use of an ethical principles screening tool will be introduced and practiced. In addition to the many ethical and boundary questions raised by issues such as texting with clients, there are other important ethical considerations related to technology that the social work profession has largely ignored. Increasingly, research demonstrates that child development, brain development, family relationships and communication have all been impacted significantly by the increasingly prominent role of technology in our lives. In light of the magnitude of this cultural change, important questions arise as to long-held beliefs about many aspects of child and family development. This includes concepts ranging from “normal” attention span, appropriate levels of autonomy during adolescent development and the stance the social work profession takes on these questions. What is the role of the social work profession in re-examining some of the core principles of child and family development in light of how technology has impacted these realities? Above and beyond a review of these changes presented in this training, critical questions will be asked to look at concepts such as ADHD vs. “normal” child and adolescent development, “appropriate” parental responses to raising a technology-saturated generation and the ethics related to our profession’s contribution to the knowledge base in these areas.

Technology is an integral part of social work practice, both assisting us in enhancing practice and posing new and complex problems in that practice. Explore the ethical dimensions of the use of technology, especially in regard to professional boundaries, confidentiality, electronic communications and social media, and telehealth. We will employ both MPSW 20 Code of Conduct and the recently revised NASW Code of Ethics in group discussion of scenarios drawn from practice.
