Ethics and Culture
2 clinical & social and cultural competence continuing education hours for social workers
Trainer: Patricia Sherman, Ph.D, LCSW
This workshop is important for all mental health professionals who want to learn more on how culture impacts ethical decision making. What happens when the client’s cultural practice challenges the western-based social work code of ethics? How can practitioners resolve ethical dilemmas that contain an element of culture within them? This workshop will include discussion on an ethical decision-making process and apply it to clinical case examples provided by the presenter as well as those from the participants.
