Thirty1 Days of Social Work


As we recognize Social Work Month during the month of March, I have decided to posted the Code of Ethics of the National Association of Social Workers.  I will never forget my professor in graduate school making the class recite the NASW Code of Ethics to promote memorization because of its importance.  A Big acknowledgement to all the social work students, BSW, MSW, LMSW, LICSW, LSW, LCSW and DSW standing by our code and doing good work in the community.
