Event Details 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 social work and substance use disorder treatment disciplines, and didactic material that addresses both the conceptual and practical level. The conceptual foundation of ethics represents an inherent and essential framework for behavioral health, including clinical social work, case management, peer-based recovery support, and substance use disorder services. While assuming all ethical standards and professional codes of ethics represent identical approaches to care, in reality significant differences exist. Many licensed social workers also hold certification as a CADC or CAADC, and must adhere to more than one code of ethics, significantly complicating their interactions with persons served. In this presentation, emphasis is given to examining personal values and ethical concepts, contrasting those personal beliefs to professional codes of ethics, and determining appropriate approaches to clientele. In addition, given the demands within behavioral health, particularly treatment of substance use disorders, boundary crossings as well as boundary violations receive prominent focus and attention. While some presentations in ethics exhibit a dry, boring, and sterile coverage of standards and professional codes, this training will actively engage participants, prioritizing current issues in the field through use of controversial topics and issues. Participants should come prepared for a thought-provoking, emotionally challenging, actively engaged day.
