Ethics for Social Workers and Substance Use Disorder Providers in the 21st Century

  • WMU Beltline Conference Center 2333 E. Beltline AVenue SE Grand Rapids, MI 49546 United States (map)

Course Description:

The conceptual foundation of ethics represents an inherent and essential framework for behavioral health, including clinical social work. While assuming all ethical standards and professional codes of ethics represent identical approaches to care, significant differences exist. In this workshop, emphasis will be given to examining personal values and ethical concepts, contrasting those personal beliefs to professional codes of ethics and determining appropriate approaches to clientele. In addition, given the demands within behavioral health, boundary crossings as well as boundary violations receive prominent focus and attention.  This workshop will actively engage participants, prioritizing current issues in the field through use of controversial topics and issues. You should come prepared for a thought provoking, emotionally challenging, actively engaged day via a multi-media, multi-sensory format, teaching to all styles of learning. Case study material will be utilized, with video clips presented from various health care disciplines, and didactic material that addresses both the conceptual and practical level.
