Conversations on Social Worker Liability (Part 2 of 4): Presented by NASW Assurance Services, Inc. 

This Community Conversation is being presented free for social workers, their clients, and the general public.  It is not CEU eligible.

Presented in partnership with NASW Assurance Services.

Preserve the “firewalls” that must exist, and be maintained between the practitioner and the client as well as the client’s family members.  Defining and communicating the professional relationship with the proper guardrails established at the beginning of therapy between all parties goes a long way in preserving your practice and eliminating risks.
