Due to increased demand the National Association of Social Workers is extending its ethics consultation days and hours beginning January 5, 2015.
NASW’s Office of Ethics and Professional Review answers member’s questions on a variety of ethical issues. Questions can range from “Am I required to provide my client access to their records” to “Under what circumstances am I required to report abuse” and “Am I able to provide therapy electronically to a client in another state.”
Consultations were offered for only three hours each day on Tuesdays and Thursdays. However, NASW members wanted the association to expand the service.
“Although members have expressed that the ethics consultations are one of the most valued benefits of membership, some stated that the window of opportunity to receive them is somewhat narrow,” said NASW Director of Ethics and Professional Review Dawn Hobdy, MSW. “I’m excited that NASW will offer extended hours to better meet the requests of membership.”
Below is the consultation contact telephone number and new extended hours:
Mondays 1:00pm – 4:00pm (ET) ext. 223
Tuesdays 10:00am – 1:00pm (ET) ext. 231
Wednesdays 1:00pm – 4:00pm (ET) ext. 223
Thursdays 10:00am – 1:00pm (ET) ext. 231
