Presented by Claude Drouet, LCSW

Social work professionals are increasingly dealing with clients and colleagues who hold very different views of ethical and moral issues. The purpose of this workshop is to examine potential conflicts so that social workers may better determine proactive responses to them. Participants will review the 201 KAR 23:080 regulation with regard to social work ethics, and practice implications will be explored. This workshop is approved by the Kentucky Board of Social Work.

This session has three overall goals: (1) to better anticipate ethical conflicts; (2) to develop greater comfort to deal with them (reducing high defensiveness or reactivity to such conflicts) and (3) to use ethical challenges as a way to promote our own professional development. We will also look at several key components of our Code of Ethics, with some lively discussion about the dynamics of respect?primary directive of the practice of social work. We will also look at selected aspects of Kentucky's laws and regulations related to our profession.

CEU Hours: 3
