Exercise your decision-making skills by working through real-life ethical dilemmas

Contributing Author: Shawn Renee Hordyk

Social workers and mental health professionals must develop skills to balance their roles as “human service” workers and actors in the legal system. Yet until they experience real-world situations, few have an opportunity to apply legal and ethical reasoning to the kinds of dilemmas faced in daily practice. Without legal training, it can be difficult to understand one's legal roles and obligations.

Managing Ethical and Legal Dilemmas examines specific problem areas involving children, families, agencies, legislation and policy-making – brought to life by case studies and vignettes. You’ll develop the skills to apply ethical and legal decision-making to the kinds of situations you’ll encounter in practice.
