Programme Details

Should I report this to my supervisor or should I protect my client's confidentiality?"

"Would the self-interest of the client takes precedence or client's self determination?"

At times, that line between what is good, what is right and what may be harmful is not that straightforward in the field of social work practice. According to the National Social Work Competency Framework (NSWCF), Ethics, Values and Legislation is the Core Knowledge and Skill (K&S) component that apply to all Key Responsibility Areas (KRAs). Ethics is undeniably a salient part of the Social Work profession. It is important for social workers to be equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills in understanding ethical dilemmas, making ethical decisions and mitigating risks. In this effective workshop, participants are able to walk away with a better understanding of the Code, apply the principles in actual practice and resolve dilemmas and conflicts that may arise in the implementation of the Code.

The training would be conducted through practical case studies, group discussions and role play. Upon completion of the 2-days high impact workshop, participants would be able to:

  • Develop awareness of value systems that impact on social work practice
  • Acknowledge the importance of applying the social work code of ethics on themselves, clients and fellow practitioners
  • Identify ethical problems and dilemmas that emerge in practice; and
  • Understand and apply the ethical decision making model

Social workers, medical social workers, psychologists, counsellors, allied health professionals, educators and social service practitioners should attend, especially if you are a Registered Social Worker-Provisional (RSW-P), a Registered Social Worker (RSW) or a Registered Social Service Practitioner (RSSP).
