Take the Values and Ethics Assessment!
This purpose of this short assessment is to invite the exploration of your ability to practice social work ethically and responsibly. After your answers have been recorded, your instructor may want to engage you and your classmates in discussion. It will help you considerably if you can explain why you think your answer is consistent with a specific portion of the Code. It is important to remember that ethical behavior is mediated by context. Thus, the information given in the examples below may be insufficient for a definitive answer. In those situations, think about the contexts in which you would provide a different answer and be prepared to explain why, using the Code as guidance.
The full Code of Ethics, including the unique values in which our ethical principles are rooted, may be found at the NASW website, www.naswdc.org.
