3.0 Clock Hours

*** This course meets the 3.0 hour Ethics requirement for licensure renewal. *** The NASW Code of Ethics provides valuable tools and insights into acting ethically. However, the needs of vulnerable populations such as persons with life threatening illnesses, brain disease, poverty, unemployment, homelessness, minority status, and others, can be exploited and overlooked.

Implementing Best Practices in Clinical Supervision with an Eye on Ethics (Recorded Event)

Presented by Teresa A. Cooley-Bennett, LCSW, LSCSW, CCDP-D, TTS

*** This course meets the 3.0 hour Ethics requirement for licensure renewal. *** 

Providing clinical oversight and supervision in the delivery of services to vulnerable populations is a common responsibility of social workers.  Because of the unique challenges experienced, opportunities for ethical dilemmas and vicarious liability are not uncommon.   As supervisors, we are accountable not only for our own ethical behavior, but for the behavior of others including colleagues and supervisees.  This continuing education program will provide an overview of common ethical principles with a special emphasis on Vicarious Liability or the doctrine of “imputed negligence”.  As an important aspect of practice, resources for identifying, managing, and preventing ethical violations will be provided with the goal being excellent customer service to our clients, supervisees, colleagues, and agencies. This workshop meets the ethics requirements for licensure.

Weight stigma affects people of all sizes in ways that are personal, cultural, economic and social. As agents of social change, what is our responsibility to engage with this dynamic? How do we do so?
