About the event

Course Description

As  professional social workers, we are mandated to make clinical decisions  based on the NASW Code of Ethics, relevant state and federal laws, and  what is considered “The Standard of Care”, not on our personal value  systems.    Clinical social workers in private practice are at a  disadvantage in that they often do not have the immediate, on-site  support and guidance of a multi-disciplinary team, supervisor, or social  work colleague and often find themselves facing challenging and  avoidable ethical dilemmas.

In  this workshop, through the use culturally diverse case examples and  interactive discussions (small and whole group), participants will apply  The NASW Code of Ethics, supporting documents and relevant laws to  complex ethical situations. The ethical and legal social work concepts  of client rights, confidentiality and privacy, informed consent, and  conflicts of interest and will be analyzed and explored.  Important  factors including social worker competence and integrity, scope of  practice, and commitment to clients will be highlighted.

Course Objectives:

Join  New Jersey’s premier ethics consultant, Leslie S. Tsukroff, MSW, LCSW  for an informative and interactive workshop in which participants will  leave this workshop being able to:

1. Identify, approach, manage and avoid complicated ethical issues

2. Recognize the most frequent ethical issues encountered by private practitioners

3. Develop a framework to approach ethical decision-making

4. Apply 6 key steps to reduce ethical malpractice risk
