Professional Ethics for Social Workers

Social workers are faced with ethical decisions every day, sometimes in a moment's notice. Although our Code of Ethics provides guidance on ethics, in this workshop we will learn ethical decision-making frameworks and tools that you can apply in your practice. We will also work through a few case studies to help strengthen your understanding of issues, guidelines and tools for effective and ethical social work practice.
