REFLECTION PAPER 2

NASW Code of Ethics

The NASW Code of Ethics is an important aspect in the field of social work as it is the

guide to understanding professional conduct for all social workers. Professional ethics in social

work are of extreme importance and the NASW Code of Ethics sets forth the values, principles,

and standards that social workers must abide by (National Association of Social Workers, 2021).

Social workers must follow the ethics in order to properly help the client and not break any of the

ethics which could result in malpractice lawsuits and cause more harm to the client than justice.

The NASW code of ethics is based on the social workers’ responsibilities to clients, colleagues,

practice settings, professional, social profession and to the broader society and the core values of

service, social justice, dignity and worth of the person, importance of human relationships,

integrity, and competence (National Association of Social Workers, 2021).

The core value of social justice is based on the social worker challenging social injustice

and acting as an advocate not only for the client but also for broader society. Social justice is

meant to serve and heal those who have been oppressed and discriminated. It is about letting the

client know they have dignity and worth as a person and everyone deserves an opportunity.

While achieving social justice it also puts value on the importance of human relationships by

promoting and enhancing the well-being of individuals, families, social groups, and communities

(National Association of Social Workers, 2021). Without advocacy for social justice there would

be no need for social work or social workers (Bisman, 2019, p. 115).

Although the core value of social justice is important to the social worker they must also

promote, advocate for, and respect the client. While serving their clients they must avoid self-

interest and use their knowledge, values, and skills in determining what is best for the client by

implementing a strategic plan in which the client agrees to and understands. As a social worker it
