Description

The versatility of a social work degree affords the holder the capacity to practice in diverse settings. This becomes a blessing and a curse. As we are often tasked with working within diverse teams with varying ethical responsibilities. Social workers are now found in virtually all practice settings like school, hospital, prisons, hospice, and the legal system to name a few. Ethical decision making becomes imperative when practicing with individuals from various professions with different professional ethical standards and obligations. This workshop explores the complexities and rewards of working in diverse settings. Due to the various practice settings, ethical decision making must be at the forefront. This workshop will explore appropriate ethical decision-making processes in diverse settings. An emphasis will be placed in best practice techniques for ethical decision-making, allowing participants to engage a variety of different intervention techniques.  A focus will be on analyzing various ethical codes:  Maryland Board of Social Work Examiners (Title 10, .03, .04 & .06) to the National Association of Social Workers Code of Ethics (1.01- 1.04, 1.07, 2.03, 2.05 & 3.02.  An emphasis will be placed on best practice techniques for ethical decision-making, allowing participants to engage a variety of different intervention techniques.
