Ethics in Private Practice: Pitfalls and Possibilities*

  • Live Webinar United States (map)

Course Description:

For Specialty Practice Members Only

When social workers engage in private practice they may be faced with challenging ethical issues in relation to maintaining professional boundaries, serving clients with special needs, and avoiding breaks in continuity of service. This webinar will explore ways in which social workers can pre-empt and respond to ethical challenges in private practice, including working in small communities, managing dual relationships, offering reduced fees, negotiating part-time private practice with agency-based work, and preparing for contingencies such as illness, impairment, and death of a social worker (including the use of professional wills).
