Free Ethics Consultations FOR NASW MEMBERS
 
The Office of Ethics and Professional Review (OEPR) provides individual ethics consultations as a benefit of NASW membership.  Ethic consultations are a resource for members who encounter ethical dilemmas and/or have ethics related questions.  Consultation services are intended to guide members through the applicable standards in the Code along with other pertinent considerations and resources that address their concerns and allows them to make reasoned ethical decisions. While we  can discuss ethical issues, we cannot provide definitive answers for  a particular situation or make decisions for members.
 
Ethics consultation telephone calls are answered on a first come first served basis and are not pre-scheduled.  If you call during consultation hours and receive a voice-mail response, we request your patience as we complete earlier member calls,  Please leave a brief message clearly stating your name and contact number and we will return your call.  Due to the high call volume, we ask that you allow 24 hours for a return call.
