Ethics in Rural Practice: There Isn't Always an Exact Answer

Credit(s): 3 CEU
Course Number: AK-2
Duration: 2 hours
Date: TBD
3:00 PM - 5:00 PM ((GMT-09:00) Alaska)

Social work and mental health practice in isolated and remote areas, especially in Alaska, can be challenging and present ethical dilemmas usually more easily avoided in urban settings. This presentation will cover issues such as unavoidable dual relationships, confidentiality issues, issues related to social media, and how to feel comfortable making decisions where no clear right answer exists. This is a presentation that is also meant to facilitate group discussion regarding these topics.
