Ethical Decision-Making in the Time of COVID with a Focus on Technology and Self Care
The COVID-19 pandemic has necessitated that many social workers change how we work, play, and live. As painful as change is, it can also be a springboard for examination or reexamination of how and why we do what we do as professionals.
In this session, we will review the fairly recent changes to the NASW Code of Ethics and a model of ethical decision making as we address the specific challenges of technology and self-care.
By the end of this session, participants will be able to
Describe the 2017 revisions to the NASW Code of Ethics
Identify at least three types of ethical mistakes
Evaluate case scenarios using an ethical decision-making framework
Describe at least three ethical opportunities regarding the use of technology
Describe at least three ethical opportunities regarding self-care
