Social Work Ethics: Practical Skills for Busy Professionals
The ethical dimensions of social work practice are deeply linked to the profession's capacity to enhance social justic and reduce harms to clients and communities. Yet busy professionals rarely find the time they need to consider the many ethical dilemmas they encounter, and many have had little formal or recent training in how to engage in ethical decision making. This daylong workshop presents participants with the opportunity to refresh the ethical skills needed for contemporary practice. Using case examples, participants build an "ethics toolkit" utilizing skills such as values clarification, application of ethical theory, code consultation, and harms analysis. Participants emerge with strengthened decision making skills and tools to integrate into everyday practice. Macro and clinical implications are covered.
