Gain a better understanding of ethical decision-making strategies while also reviewing common challenges social workers face.Every social worker faces ethical challenges. Some ethical challenges are familiar: Under what circumstances are social workers permitted to disclose confidential information without a client's consent? Is it appropriate to share some personal information with clients for therapeutic purposes? Can social workers provide services to minors without their parents' knowledge or consent? How should social workers who live in small communities manage complex boundaries and dual relationships? But other ethical challenges in social work are much newer: Can social workers provide services remotely (using digital technology) to clients they never meet in person and who live in another state? Is it ever permissible to communicate with clients or former clients using social networking sites (e.g., Facebook®)? Is it ethical for social workers to search online for information about clients without their knowledge? Should social workers permit clients to access their clinical records online? In this engaging topic, Dr. Frederic Reamer will discuss enduring and cutting-edge ethical issues in social work and share his insights about practical ways to protect clients and prevent ethics complaints and litigation.
