Happy New Year! It's 2018! It's the year you get licensed!
With the new year comes the new NASW Code of Ethics and the new ASWB content blueprints. Both kicked in for social workers and exam preppers on 1/1/18.
SWTP is ready for them both!
We've updated our exams to reflect the new categories and new category-to-category weighting in the ASWB outline (aswb.org has details, if you're curious). And we've updated and added new ethics questions to each exam and the Ethics Booster to reflect changes to the Code of Ethics.
To read more about the changes to the Code (the more vital of the two updates for all social workers), read the new version of the code linked above, and/or take a look at these two helpful summaries:
Most of the significant additions are related to the use of tech for social workers. Email, Googling clients, etc. We'll post a free new-code question or two on these pages soon--stay tuned! With the articles above, you'll have everything new you need to know to be ready for practice (and real) ethics questions. Remember, there's a lot of ethics on the exam. Be ready. Practice tests will help.
While we were updating, we also checked every single suggested study link to ensure you're getting the best possible additional information on all of the topics covered on the exams. (If you find a better one for any question, please don't hesitate to let us know.)
If you want to get licensed in 2018, we want to help you! One way to get started: Make a public pledge to pass the exam this year: Retweet SWTP here or share via SWTP on Facebook. "This year I get licensed!"
