Attendees will be provided an overview of the most recent updates to ethical mandates relevant to licensed social workers (LCSW-C, LCSW, and LMSW) in the state of Maryland: the Maryland Board of Social Work Examiners (MBSWE) Code of Ethics (COE) and the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) COE. The MBSWE COE was released in 1983 and has undergone six revisions, the most recent occurring in 2011. The NASW COE released in 1996 has undergone two revisions, with the most recent being implemented in 2018. Emphasis will be on the practice expectations of clinical social workers in the state of Maryland under these two ethics codes, with a special emphasis on the duty to warn based on updated case law and Maryland child abuse reporting laws. Content includes review of research conducted by Dr. Munson of the MBSWE’S ethics sanctions of licensed social workers from 2005 to 2018.
