Thank you for following NASW Ohio Chapter. To ensure the best possible experience for everyone, we have established some basic rules for our page. This applies to anyone who comments on our posts or any other form of communication.
Code of Ethics: Foremost, we look to the NASW Code of Ethics to shape interaction. The Code is the standard for defining the values and principles that guide decision-making and everyday professional conduct of social workers and social work students in all practice areas, functions and settings. On our page, we agree to adhere to the Code of Ethics in all of our interactions. Additional specific expectations are listed below.
-Respect others. Focus on the content of posts and not on the people making them. Please extend the benefit of the doubt to others; there’s no such thing as a silly question. Do not post anything that you would not want the world to see, or to know it came from you. Contradictory opinions are welcomed, but please be thoughtful and respectful rather than insulting or angry. Personal remarks about the sender are not appropriate.
-Respect the purpose of the page. Information posted on the page is available for all to see, and comments are subject to libel, slander, and antitrust laws, among other laws (see discussion under Legal Requirements below).
-Keep marketing efforts separate. Help us keep this community a learning tool and do not post purely commercial messages. "Commercial" in this context refers to posts in which the primary purpose appears to be advancing the business or financial interests of any person or entity. If you are posting about a tool or service that compensates you in any way, you must disclose the nature of your affiliation with the product or service (i.e., ownership stake, employment status, referral commission).
NASW Ohio Chapter staff retains the right to block followers or hide comments without warning when a page follower is in violation of the rules. If you feel like
