3 Clinical CEUs in Ethics approved by NASW VT #1112

NASW Vermont Chapter is recognized by the New York State Education Department's State Board for Social Work as an approved provider of continuing education for licensed social workers #SW-0683. This workshop meets the criteria for New York's professional boundaries CE requirements.

Social workers must expect to encounter boundary challenges in practice and be prepared to respond to them with ethical decision-making. Join Jacob D. Stone, ACSW, LSW (Ret.), for a refresher on the Code of Ethics (and more!) in this webinar on the ethical management of boundary challenges. Attendees will learn to pinpoint relevant sections of the Code, to utilize a problem-solving algorithm to resolve ethical dilemmas, and to understand the ways in which technology has created new categories and possibilities for boundary violations.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the guidelines for ethical management of boundary challenges that are articulated in the NASW Code of Ethics, and understand how to use the Code to inform their ethical decision-making.
  • Identify the ethical principles that are inherent in any ethical dilemma, and the ways that tension between ethical principles mandates careful ethical decision-making.
  • Utilize a problem-solving algorithm to resolve ethical dilemmas.
  • Discuss both boundary crossings and boundary violations, and how to manage them ethically.
  • Describe the ways that new social media and communication technologies have created new categories and possibilities for boundary crossings and boundary violations.
  • Explain the critical importance of seeking consultation when dealing with an ethical dilemma
  • Describe the benefit and need for continual self-monitoring for possible boundary crossings or boundary violations
