Ethical Decision-Making in Complicated Times


Tuesday, May 19, 2020

9:00 AM - 11:00 AM (2 CEUs)

 Presenter: Karen Goodenough, MSW, LGSW 



As our world and our work become more complicated, particularly in the current context of coronavirus (COVID-19) and remote service delivery, so do the ethical dilemmas that we face. This session will include an updated look at our ethical standards and obligations under the NASW Code of Ethics and State Licensure, and a refresher on the basic principles underlying ethical thinking. 

Participants will:  1) Learn to differentiate legal, moral and ethical dilemmas; 2) Discuss and apply a model for analyzing and resolving ethical dilemmas; 3) Have opportunities to share case examples for discussion.
