• After reviewing the NASW Code, think back to the social issue/problem you selected and discussed for the Week 1 assignment. Identify two specific areas from the NASW Code of Ethics that you think might become the greatest ethical challenge in addressing the issue/problem from Week 1. For example, the most recently revised Code contains information on texting clients, electronic communication, Facebook, etc., which may present ethical issues for social workers who use social media. How might your own personal ethical values compare and contrast with the NASW Code of Ethics that you are required to follow as a professional?

• For each of the two areas you identified, develop at least one recommendation for social workers who encounter ethical “gray areas” related to the social problem. Be sure to locate the website for the Social Work Licensing Board for your state, and explore any recommendations or provisions the Board may suggest for resolving ethical dilemmas. In addition, research any relevant laws in your state that may be relevant to your identified issue.

• Provide examples to support your findings.

Support your assignment with at least three scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including seminal articles, may be included.
