The School Social Work Association of America (SSWAA) is pleased to offer this webinar as a part of SSWAA's webinar series  on research topics related to school social work.    Please note that all webinars are being recorded and will be available even if you are not able to attend during the actual webinar event.  

Webinar Description:

Quick answers and simple solutions seldom work for ethical predicaments. Beginning with an introduction to the moral, legal, and clinical foundations that undergird ethical practice, the presenter will outline a seven-step approach to ethical decision making. These steps include: Knowing yourself; analyzing the dilemma; seeking consultation; identifying courses of action; managing the clinical concerns; enacting the decision; and reflecting on the process. Practical cases will be used to make these steps come alive for workshop participants.

Learning Objectives:

1) Participants will be able to define an ethical dilemma.

2) Participants will learn a systematic way to manage ethical predicaments.

2) Participants will apply ethical principles to real life cases in schools.
