Join us for two Social Work Ethics training opportunities. "Ethical Action in Challenging Times" and "The Ethics of Professional Practice in Rural Settings" courses will each award 3 hours of ethics.

Ethical Action in Challenging Times | 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Whether in the board room or the locker room, the classroom or the dining room, most of us are at some time confronted with the choice to speak up in defense of an ethical principle such as honesty, fairness, or justice. “Ethical action” is our capacity to respond when the situation arises. Such actions, while valuable, do not usually come easily or naturally. Yet their expression is important for the wellbeing of our relationships, our organizations and our communities.

The Ethics of Professional Practice in Rural Settings | 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Close, overlapping, and interdependent relationships are all hallmarks of rural areas. The social structures of these communities are flexible and not highly differentiated, resulting in intersecting social and professional interactions that can test long-held ethical and clinical concepts, such as confidentiality, objectivity, competence, and client-practitioner boundaries. This workshop examines the features of rural social work practice as they relate to these ethical concepts, and provides guidelines for appropriately addressing challenging situations.

Each course is $79 per person
