SPS Webinar - I’ve Been Subpoenaed. Now What? – Ethical responses to calls to testify

Wednesday, March 27, 2024 (1 -2 pm ET)

Presenter:  Allan Barsky, JD, MSW, PhD

CEs:  1 Ethics contact hour

As social workers, we often promise clients that we will maintain the privacy and confidentiality of information that they share with us in the helping process. But what are our ethical obligations when we receive a legal document stating that we must testify in court or share client records that relate to confidential client information? This webinar will provide you with crucial information and strategies for analyzing ethical issues that may arise when you receive a subpoena, including options for addressing client confidentiality, privilege, consent, safety, public interests, and compliance with legally enforceable subpoenas.

Objectives:

  • Identify whether a document that they receive is an enforceable subpoena requiring them to submit their records and/or testify in court.
  • Evaluate ethical issues related to client confidentiality, privilege, consent, safety, public interests, and compliance with legally enforceable subpoenas.
  • Identify how to make informed choices, with the assistance of an attorney, about how to respond to a subpoena.
