Boundaries and Ethics Update 2021

Boundaries & Ethics Update 2021 PPT

This session will provide a decision-making model for complex ethical decision-making, and will then review challenges in the current environment of the pandemic and social unrest. Challenges of safety in the provision of services, and those of providing service remotely (phone, computer, zoom, etc.), will be discussed. Increases in family violence, firearm acquisition, and overdose deaths are complicated by service access issues and concerns about police actions. The growth in electronic communication creates new boundaries, challenges, and the need to better define amount and mode of interaction on social media. Quarantine and travel limitations have led to more service needs from remote parts of states and provinces as well as across local and national borders. With the expansion in remote services comes options and challenges.

This webinar counts for one CEU for the Minnesota Board of Social Work ethics requirement.
