Ethics, Boundaries & Rural Social Work Practice
Friday, January 20, 2023 | 8:30a.m. - 12:30p.m.
Presenter: Kate Kipp
The four-hour workshop will discuss the specific challenges and considerations with ethical social work practice in rural settings. As technology connects more people in different ways, maintaining privacy and healthy boundaries can be increasingly challenging. We will discuss healthy boundaries, dual relationships, and use the NASW Code of Ethics and Reamer's Ethical Decision-Making Model to assess the ways technology and rural social practice intersect.
At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to:
- Identify ethical challenges specific to rural practice and technology.
- Define and identify healthy boundaries.
- Define and know the differences between confidentiality, privacy, and informed consent.
- Define and discuss dual relationships and challenges of dual relationships in rural social work practice.
- Utilize the NASW Code of Ethics and Reamer's Ethical Decision-Making model to resolve ethical dilemmas in practice.
