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, small group discussion and by examining The NASW Code of Ethics, participants will learn how to identify, approach, manage and avoid complicated ethical issues. With reference to pertinent values, standards and principals in the NASW Code of Ethics and relevant laws,  the presenter will highlight significant ethical and legal social work concepts such as:  client rights; confidentiality and privacy;  informed consent; boundaries/conflicts of interest; misrepresentation/fraud; and commitment to clients. Important ethical/clinical areas including social worker competence, documentation, supervision/consultation and client termination will also be addressed.
