Ethics and Boundaries: Practicing in the Electronic Age: Application of the Revised NASW Code of Ethics

Presented by: Nicholas Smiar, PhD, ACSW, CISW

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.
