Introduction Information technology is ubiquitous in the lives of people across the globe. These technologies take many forms such as personal computers, smart phones, internet technologies, as well as AI and robotics. In fact, the list is growing constantly and new forms of these technologies are working their way into every aspect of daily life.
Ethical standards in social work: This is the first comprehensive, in-depth examination of the code of ethics of the social work profession.
Ethical Standards in Social Work provides guidance for practice in areas such as confidentiality, boundary issues, informed consent, conflicts of interest, research and evaluation, and more.
Using many case examples, this practical and essential guide provides a firm foundation for making ethical decisions and minimizing malpractice and liability risk.
It addresses scholarly inquiry, including development of models for analyzing and resolving value and ethical conflicts; description of new value dilemmas and their impact on social work practice; research studies on the influence of values and ethics in social work practice decision-making and in agency program development; examples of good practice that clearly highlight ethical and value considerations; theoretical articles that explain the origin, development, and evolution of social work values and ethics; discussion of ethical and value dilemmas related to the development of new technologies; and review and analysis of scholarly and practice books, monographs, and articles written on the topic of social work values and ethics.
References The following references selected from a broad literature search using key words ethics, social work, and research is not exhaustive, but reflects the range of research-related writings addressing value-relatedness, problem identification, and methodology.
Provided are examples of case studies, and both qualitative and quantitative methodology. The references are grouped in three sections as defined above: The articles are listed in descending order from most recent publications from towith the exception of two earlier publications that provide perspective of particular note.
Research on Ethics Sexual ethics: MSW and BSW members of NASW in one state were surveyed to assess their attitudes about sexual contact with clients and their perceptions about their training and education in this area. Both groups were found to be critical of sexual conduct between social workers and clients and would take action if they became aware of sexual contact between a colleague and a client.
The authors suggest that more research is need to in order to adequately determine training and attitudes among BSWs and MSWs in the area of sexual ethics.
Boundaries in social work: The ethical dilemma of social worker-client sexual relationships. It also presents an historical perspective for discussing previous research documenting the incidence of this unethical behavior and offers policy implications that address prevention of social worker misconduct.
The use of vignettes in qualitative research into social work values.
However, current accounts of social work ethics can have difficulty in providing an account of social work values in practice that incorporates the complexity and reflexive nature of much value talk in social care.
Direct research in this area has been very limited. Where it has been carried out, quantitative research using vignettes has been an important approach. Vignettes have many advantages when used to examine ethical dilemmas. Their increasing use in qualitative research offers new possibilities in exploring values that might generate more complex and sophisticated understanding of social work ethics.
While the code is relatively comprehensive, it is viewed as a set of guidelines, and social workers are not necessarily obligated to abide by the code.
Dual relationships in social work education: Report on a national survey. Dual relationships between social work educators and their current or former students are largely unstudied.
Educators were asked how they regarded different types of dual relationships and differences between dual relationships with current and former students. They were also asked about ethics education in their schools.
Beliefs about dual relationships varied, especially regarding current students and former ones. While ethics education in schools of social work is extensive, policies on dual relationships are scarce. Further research is needed on the ethics of dual relationships in social work education.
Ethical vulnerability in social work education: An analysis of NASW complaints. This article reports the findings of a study reviewing ethics complaints filed with the National Association of Social Workers from to and details the degree to which students, faculty, and field instructors are the subject of allegations and findings of misconduct.
The research is examined in the light of the literature on supervision, academic misconduct, and student and personnel grievances. It concludes with recommendations for promoting ethical practice in social work education.
The NASW Code of Ethics is intended to serve as a guide for practice and as a statement of professional standards that the public may use to hold social workers accountable for their actions.The fact that something is legal doesn’t make it ethical. You might think it’s obvious, but it’s not, as evidenced by the fact that a former student recently told me that his Finance professor explicitly told him that if something is legal, it’s ethical full stop.
