Practice Standards Committee

Location: 1776 South Jackson Street, Basement Conference Room, Denver 80210

Contact: Heather McLaughlin hcmlaughlin.naswco@socialworkers.org

The purpose of the Committee on Practice Standards is to examine areas of all social work practice and develop guidelines of ethical conduct. This committee does not function in lieu of the specially appointed NASW Committee on Inquiry, but rather in addition to such a committee. The Committee on Practice Standards focuses on areas in which standards of practice have not been developed, as well as areas where questions may have come forth regarding unclear interpretations of existing standards. The committee may issue advisory opinions regarding the practice of social work.

NASW-CO Committees are fully open to all NASW Members. Non-members can request a visitation by contacting the Committee Chair.

The Committee has a consultative process that handles questions from members. This process guides members in the ethical decision-making process, but does not provide supervision or give legal advice. The Committee will accept questions/issues that have an impact on social work practice. You are invited to attend a meeting in person or by phone to bring the question/issue for discussion. Please contact the office to request the issue be added to a meeting agenda.
