Ethical Dilemmas and Legal Issues: Decision Making for Safe and Ethical Social Work Practice

Posted by Joel Krauss for College of Health and Human Services

This workshop addresses the use of laws, codes of ethics and ethical decision-making models to address ethical issues, resolve ethical dilemmas and prevent ethical violations. We'll analyze common ethical issues/dilemmas encountered in practice to gain understanding of alternative ways of responding to them. You will apply the code and learn an ethical decision-making model that you will apply to cases regarding issues like blurred boundaries and dual relationships, confidentiality, informed consent and self-determination. You will recognize the risks to practice with the use of technology and learn methods to safeguard practice.
