We as individuals, and our society are experiencing multiple challenges each day; therefore, it is more important than ever that we maintain the process of learning and growing professionally (personally too, of course). NASW’s Code of Ethics continues to facilitate this growth for Social Workers, through the revisions that guide us in our work with our Clients. This seminar will address the highlights of the code’s revisions regarding Cultural Awareness and Social Diversity. It will also identify definitions, look at some historical facts to enhance our view and understanding of unconscious bias; blind spot bias; and self-education. The benefits to our Clients, and empowerment for them, to let them teach us about their culture and related life experiences will also be addressed.
