Social Work Ethics and Advocacy:
Standing at the Forefront of Change

Social work practitioners may struggle with section 6.04 of the Code of Ethics (Social Workers' Ethical Responsibilities to the Broader Society). Is it mandatory? How does advocating for changes in policy and politics connect with my daily practice? What if I lack the skills or knowledge to be an effective advocate? This workshop will enable social workers to better adhere to the Code's mandate for social work involvement in promoting social justice, explore barriers to advocacy and how to best overcome them, and develop tools for using existing social work skills in the legislative and/or political arenas.


Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will discuss section 6.04 of the Code of Ethics and what it means to adhere to this important ethical obligation as a micro, mezzo, or macro practitioner.
  • Participants will explore barriers that keep social workers from being fully involved in legislative and/or political action.
  • Participants will learn tools for improving their efficacy as advocates for social justice and the social work profession.
