Professional ethics provide guidelines for safe and effective treatment delivery, yet we are often challenged in our day-to-day delivery of services. This workshop will provide an opportunity to explore our own personal values within the context of the NASW Code of Ethics as well as develop deeper understanding of the underlying ethical theories. Real-life examples of ethical dilemmas will be utilized in learning how to use ethical decision-making models. Clients presenting with pain related issues are becoming increasingly prevalent, as is their impact on all areas of social work ethics and practice.
