Webinar: Ethics in Private Practice: Pitfalls and Possibilities

Cost: SPS Members: Free / NASW Members: $30 / Non-NASW Members: $40 CE: 1.5 Ethics Contact Hours Presenter: Allan Barsky, JD, MSW, PhD When social workers engage in private practice they may be faced with challenging ethical issues in relation to maintaining professional boundaries, serving clients with special needs, and avoiding breaks in continuity of service. This webinar will explore ways in which social workers can pre-empt and respond to ethical challenges in private practice, including working in small communities, managing dual relationships, offering reduced fees, negotiating part-time private practice with agency-based work, and preparing for contingencies such as illness, impairment, and death of a social worker (including the use of professional wills). Learning Objectives: Participants will learn how to prepare for contingencies such as death, impairment, and illness of the social worker, ensuring continuity of service and avoiding client abandonment (NASW COE Standards 1.15 and 1.17). Participants will learn how to identify and manage issues that may arise out of dual relationships, including having a part-time private practice in addition to agency-based practice or playing more than one role with clients (NASW COE Standard 1.06). Participants will learn how to prioritize client needs (NASW COE Standard 1.01) while also managing concerns about safety, professional competence (NASW COE Standard 1.04), and fair fees (NASW COE Standard 1.13). Participants will learn how to manage potential dual relationships when clients ask social workers to provide family or couple’s counseling in addition to individual counseling (NASW COE Standard 1.06). Participants will learn how to manage requests for services or information from family members of a client who has died (NASW COE Standards 1.06 and 1.07). Participants will learn how to manage ethical concerns in relation to fees, including dropping insurance carriers, raising fees, requiring self-pay after treatment is already in progress, and charging clients for time required to provide clients with access to records or writing reports (NASW COE Standard 1.13). #CEU #ethics #Private Practice
