Event Details With the advent of the Affordable Care Act, an emphasis on patient-centered medical and behavior health homes, and the emergence of integrated healthcare, social workers now experience increased interaction, complex team dynamics, and shared patient caseloads. The primary disciplines in behavioral health often adhere to their respective codes of ethics, either ignoring what occurred in patient interactions with other health care professionals or perceiving all interactions through the lens of their respective code. Since many social workers are licensed, yet are also certified in addictions treatment, the situation becomes even more complex, with service providers mandated to adhere to more than one code.

This presentation will engage participants in a multi-media, multi-sensory format, teaching to all styles of learning. Case study material will be utilized, with video clips presented from various health care disciplines, and didactic material that addresses both the conceptual and practical level.
