Class offered for social workers
Minnesota State University Moorhead is offering a class on "Professional Ethics and Dual Relationships" for social workers and other human service professionals from 2 to 4:30 p.m. Feb. 26 in MSUM's Center for Business room 111. Jeremy Carney, an MSUM assistant professor of social work, will be the presenter.
Most high profile ethics cases involving helping professionals revolve around the development of intimate relationships with clients. What about non-sexual dual relationships with clients? Carney will explore the potential hazards of these relationships and the ethical implications involved. A discussion of professional boundaries and an ethical framework for decision making will be the focus of this session.
Minnesota and North Dakota social workers may earn continuing education contact hours for licensure requirements. This session will satisfy the Minnesota Board of Social Work's requirement for two hours of continuing education in social work ethics for license renewal. The class is endorsed by the Minnesota chapter of the National Association of Social Workers and the MSUM Human Services Resource Center. Cost for the session is $65 and includes beverages and a CEU certificate.
