Embracing Our Ethical Obligations 


The NASW Code of Ethics describes our obligations to maintain and promote professional standards in our interactions with colleagues and in our of social work practice.  Through interactive discussions, and group activities participants will gain an awareness of the skills necessary to ensure the care and wellbeing of our clients within a framework of ethical behavior. Participants will also examine real case scenarios and gain skills that will be useful to all areas of social work.

Participants will come away with an upbeat message. You will leave encouraged, and with a better understanding of the need to promote the highest standards of excellence during challenging times. (Trainer, Tara Rice, LCSW-C, The TARA Center)

To Disclose or Not Disclose, That is the Ethical Question!


The therapeutic relationship can be enhanced by the rapport the therapist has with their client.  Yet some clients are easier to connect with than others. Can self-disclosure help with rapport building? Can self-disclosure help the therapeutic relationship or does it just lead down a slippery ethical slope?

This interactive training will explore these questions and more. Participants will look at our own personal values, examine case vignettes and explore how transference and counter transference can affect the efficacy of the therapeutic relationship. (Trainer, Tzipora Frager, LCSW-C, Johns Hopkins Out Patient Clinic, Health Behavioral Specialist)
