Be connected to an ethics consultant within 2 business days.

Have an ethical dilemma? NASW-MA members can call the Chapter’s free Ethics Hotline to be connected with a highly trained MSW ethics consultant within two business days.

The Ethics Hotline provides consultation to social workers who are concerned about whether they are caught in an ethical dilemma and might be on the verge of violating the NASW Code of Ethics. Requests for consultation have focused on such diverse issues as confidentiality, dual relationships, leaving an agency, policy setting, and unethical behavior by colleagues. Social workers from a variety of practice settings have used the hotline service to help inform their own thinking about ethical practice.

National Office Hotline

For all NASW Members

The National Office of Ethics and Professional Review provides ethics consultations for current NASW members. Ethic consultations are a resource for members who are experiencing an ethical dilemma. We do not provide advice or tell members what to do. However, we do guide them through the Code and point them to the areas of the Code that address their concerns. We provide dialogue and considerations that allow members to make ethical decisions. We may also refer members to the appropriate areas if their questions do not appear to be related to ethics but are more related to legal issues or standards of practice. MORE INFO
