This experiential ethics and boundaries training will include interactive dialogue, focused discussion, and applied-practice exercises utilizing the World Café© model. Ethical issues and boundary-related dilemmas specific to the region will be identified and an ethical decision-making model will be used to assess situations and determine appropriate courses of action that are grounded in the Code of Ethics of the National Association of Social Workers and the Wisconsin Code of Conduct.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will understand the requirements of ethical conduct according to Wisconsin law and professional standards.
  2. Participants will actively identify ethical issues relevant to their professional area of practice and geographical region.
  3. Participants will interact and network with other social workers to incorporate an ethical decision-making model for identified regional issues.
