Abstract

The ethical code of the National Organization for Human Services (NOHS), Ethical Standards for Human Services Professionals, was first drafted and approved in the 1990's. More recently, a substantial five-year effort was given to preparing for and developing its first revision. The revision process and changes to the ethical code, approved early in 2015, are highlighted in this article. The revised Ethical Standards for Human Services Professionals was compared with the ethical code for the HS-BCP, and differences and similarities are described. Suggestions for future revisions processes are offered.
