Join Jacob Stone, retired social work professor, for a lively discussion of the ethical dilemmas social workers face.
Ethical Issues in Self-Disclosure
Self-disclosure by social workers to clients can be a useful therapeutic tool, but can also be damaging to a clinical relationship and to clients. Inappropriate self-disclosure can also represent an unethical boundary violation.
The NASW Code of Ethics offers some general guidelines about this sort of boundary issue, but each so-cial worker must determine, on a case-by-case basis, how – if at all – to utilize self-disclosure in their clinical work.
This ethics round table will be an opportunity for sharing, facilitated discussion with colleagues, and pro-cessing of relevant case studies.
