Hot Topics in Ethical Thinking
2 ethics CEUs, open to all social workers and students
Presenter: Karen E. Goodenough, PhD, MSW, LGSW
2 CEUs - may be counted as ethics CEUs
There are many changes underway in our profession – confirming pre-existing concerns, bringing new challenges to light, and leaving us with many questions about how to proceed in our practice. In this session we’ll dig into some of social work’s current “hot topics” through a lens of ethical thinking.
Join us to discuss licensure issues as connected to the release of ASWB exam data and the Interstate Compact, considerations in telehealth when you or your client relocate, and how things are going with self-care’s inclusion in the Code of Ethics. We’ll also refresh your ethical decision-making on how to work through dilemmas, while protecting yourself and your practice.
