The NASW & ASWB Standards for Technology and Social Work Practice was developed to create a uniform document for the profession. Technology has changed social work practice, offering new ways to perform services and obtain information. It is defined as any electronically mediated activity used in the conduct of competent and ethical delivery of social work services. The NASW & ASWB Standards for Technology and Social Work Practice is designed to serve as a guide to social workers incorporating technology into their services.
NASW Practice Standards & Guidelines provide benchmarks that describe the services that social workers should provide; that employers should support and that consumers should expect.
