Submit a Request for Professional Review Against an NASW Member: NASW promotes the quality and effectiveness of social work practice. Professional review is a collaborative process between chapters and the national office to provide a peer review of alleged unethical conduct of its members.
The professional review process is designed to correct and improve the practice of individual social workers as needed. The actions of the process are intended to be constructive and educative rather than punitive. Only in cases of serious misconduct may penalties be imposed.
