Concordia Graduate & Continuing Studies is an approved provider of social work continuing education for MN (MNBSW) and ND (NDBSWE).
Welcome to our course on Ethical Practice and the 2021 Revision to the Code of Ethics. As mental health professionals we function under the auspice of our code of ethics which enables us to interact with our clients in a manner that fosters professional practice. The issues of self-care and Cultural Competence have been added and/or revised in this edition of the Code of Ethics and the revisions are important for us to understand and incorporate into our professional practice.
Participants will explore three models for ethical decision-making and a model that has been specifically identified as helpful to new and veteran practitioners. In addition, we will explore cultural competence and how we can demonstrate both humility and competence when working with diverse clients. A self-care plan template is included on the closing page, and you are encouraged to begin work on the document to foster a move toward action. After the lecture, a quiz will be taken to validate your learning. A certificate will be awarded following successful completion of the course.
