21st Century Ethics: Identifying and Resolving Ethical Challenges in a Time of Pandemic, Extreme Political Polarization, and Technological Change

NASW Vermont

The extreme political polarization that exists today has had huge impact on social work practice. These issues relate to client self-determination, cultural sensitivity and the need to respect client world views, the role of advocacy and client education, the ways that SW’s respond to cult-related impairment, and the ever-present issues of duty to protect and duty to warn. The current climate also challenges social workers to consider their ethical obligations for political action and advocacy.

This workshop will provide a review of the ethical mandates in the NASW Code of Ethics, and a generic algorithm for resolving ethical dilemmas. Beyond that, we will use case studies to illustrate the ethical challenges of the pandemic, the current political ferment, and ever-changing technologies. We will particularly consider the ways that the pandemic has impacted on the use of these new technologies.
