Ethical Issues when Serving Vulnerable Populations (Recorded Event)

Presented by Gary U. Behrman, PhD, MSW, M.Div., LCSW 

3.0 Clock hours

*** This course meets the 3.0 hour Ethics requirement for licensure renewal. *** 

The NASW Code of Ethics provides valuable tools and insights into acting ethically. However, the needs of vulnerable populations such as persons with life threatening illnesses, brain disease, poverty, unemployment, homelessness, minority status, and others, can be exploited and overlooked. This workshop, which meets the clinical licensure requirements, will closely examine our responsibilities when working with vulnerable populations and how to be both sensitive and effective in meeting their goals. 

OBJECTIVES:

  1. Identify what it means to be empathic, compassionate, and ethical
  2. Understand how vulnerable populations can be disenfranchised by the healthcare system
  3. Explore how to build character to act ethically
  4. Apply Code of Ethics principles to working with vulnerable populations
