Walking a Tightrope: Balancing Personal and Professional Ethics in Home-Visiting (2 CEUs, 1 CEU in Ethics)
April 1 2015 at 6:00 PM
Oakland Center - Educational Outreach
Register Here! Home visits are a service provision strategy used within a variety of programs in the field of social work. However, home visits can intensify a social worker’s reactions due to the intimate nature and the relationship-based focus of the work.  How these professionals remain professional in the face of such intimacy, vulnerability, and risk is essential to consider. This training session will discuss special considerations when providing home-based services, including the impact of stress, diversity, and the use of self.  Lecture, discussion, case material and video clips will aid in understanding home-based experiences and clear the sometimes blurred lines between professional and ethical responsibility and personal responses. Includes 1 CEU in ethics. Instructors: Carla Barron, L.M.S.W. and Beverly Weathington, L.M.S.W.
