Distance-based good news The Social Work Professional Liability Insurance policy sponsored by NASW Assurance Services provides coverage worldwide, as long as the claim is made and the suit is brought in the United States, its territories, possessions, Puerto Rico or Canada.

  • 36. Touch as a model? Social workers should not engage in physical contact with clients when there is a possibility of psychological harm to the client as a result of the contact (such as cradling or caressing clients). Social workers who engage in appropriate physical contact with clients are responsible for setting clear, appropriate, and culturally sensitive boundaries that govern such physical contact.
