We are surrounded daily by ethical dilemmas in both our personal and professional lives. There are times when facing ethical issues, we feel uncertain and perhaps even powerless. This workshop will provide an opportunity for practitioners to revisit the definition of ethics, ethical practice, and ethical decision making. The role of values in ethics will also be explored.


Workshop Objectives:

At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to:
1. Define ethics in a professional manner using the NASW Code of Ethics.
2. Identify the role of ethics and values in practice.
3. Understand ethical decision making.
4. Practice and implement knowledge of ethical practice through the use of case study.
This dynamic, interactive program will include individual and small group activities and discussions.
