Workshop Description:

Ethical practice is a top priority for social workers nationally. In today’s climate of extreme division of thoughts, ideas, and opinions, social workers must remain committed to the NASW Code of Ethics. This workshop will provide participants with an overview of ethical standards and our responsibilities as professionals as well as an understanding of the 2021 changes in NASW’s Code of Ethics that includes “Self Care” and renewed emphasis on “Cultural Competence.”

Upon completion of this workshop participants will:

  • Understand how burnout, vicarious trauma, and compassion fatigue impacts ethical decision making.
  • Be able to identify professional obligations to self-monitor and colleague’s self-care.
  • Demonstrate understanding of the importance of culture competence in today’s world and within our professional work.
  • Identify steps to improve cultural competence individually and in your agencies.
