The NASW Code of Ethics’ Connection to the Sanchez family Case The Sanchez family is a multigenerational family, not unlike other families living in the United States. Current person-in-environment conditions and lifestyle choices hinder the capability to improve their quality of life. Intervention from competent and committed professionals will change the dynamic challenges the family faces.
Ethics Case Analysis #2: Relationship Dilemma Several months after beginning a counseling relationship with Jane, my client showed up at a family dinner with my brother-in-law. Up to this point I had felt that our professional relationship had gotten very strong and that the rapport established was beneficial for effective counseling work. Jane, though mandated for counseling due to a DUI offense, had disclosed her concerns regarding substance abuse and depression.
The North Carolina State Board of Education outlines the professional standards to which teaches should uphold within, and even outside of, the classroom. These standards are comprised of the commitment to the student, commitment to the school, and commitment to the profession. Also, the Code of Ethics includes the professional conduct which entails, honesty, the acknowledgement of the rights of others, keeping information confidential, and compliance of criminal laws (NC State Board of Education, 1998). Ultimately, the NC Code of Ethics is a set of rules in which teachers must uphold during their career. Discussion Commitment to the Student
After carefully reviewing NAEYC Code of Ethical Conduct and Statement of Commitment I first analyzed its Conceptual framework, it sets forth the responsibilities as a childcare personnel & the professional responsibilities of childcare workers including childcare leaders as well the code of conduct framework of professional responsibilities. Furthermore it’s separated into four sections, however each section covers the following area as a professional relationships with any children that personnel come in contact with whether they attend the childcare center or contact during trips & or picking the children up from school, relationships with families in & out of the childcare center, professional relationship among colleagues, and relationships & interactions amongst the community and society. Each section also includes but not limited to an introduction with the primary responsibilities as an early childhood education practitioner & or personnel regardless of what position the childcare worker may hold in that context. As
Ethical Violations By Essence Sanchez Professor Sabina Balkaran Keiser University February 10, 2017 What is Ethics? Ethics or moral principles is presumably recognized as a set of conduct codes that one should live up to in which distinguishes between behaviors or thoughts that are considered unacceptable or acceptable in society. Ethical guidelines have been reinforced to protect the people from any psychological or physical damage.(Resnik, 2015)
In the first scenario presented on page 121 of the text (Mackenzie & Mackenzie, 2010), a principal has accepted an award for gains in math scores within the school from the chair of the board. In his acceptance, he never mentions his faculty. Since he did not seem to support the math department’s suggestions for improvement, a teacher is upset and wants to schedule a meeting with the board chairman to let him/her know that the principal lacks ethics. I do not agree with this approach because speaking against another educator is considered disparaging, and the principal should be given an opportunity to explain the acceptance first.
In this case study the primary nurse, Amelia Wilkerson, is caring for a patient, Katy Palmer who has recently been admitted to the hospital for fatigue and abnormal lab counts. The patient asks Amelia for information regarding her diagnosis. Amelia has seen Katy’s results and knows that she has been diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia. The ethical dilemma seen in this situation is that it is outside of the scope of practice for Amelia to discuss Katy’s original diagnosis with her.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is considered a global leader with a high standard Code of Conduct. They apply the code daily to every decision that must be made. The code applies to all employees, contract staff, vendors, trainees, students, volunteers, and board members. St. Jude’s mission is to advance cures for diseases through research and treatment. Race, religion, or a family’s ability to pay would never affect the hospital’s decision to treat a child.
What is the NASW? Why did the NASW create a Code of Ethics for social workers? The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) developed a code of values which is intended to serve as a model or guide to professional behavior for social workers. The NASW Code of Ethics includes a set of core values which lay the foundation, policies, and mission for the social work office which the foundation of social work is based upon Workers, N. A. (2008).
Planning is transforming socially, but to achieve change it has to bring together, politicians, planners, and residents (Sandercock, 2004). Citizen’s opinions and rights should be taken into consideration. It is the number one rule in the planning process for participants. It says, “recognize the rights of citizens to participate in planning decisions” (Ethical, n.d.). Cities cannot progress unless they change their ways of doing things.
When reading the IAMFC Code of Ethics and AAMFT Code of Ethics I found that they compare significantly, much more than they contrast. Many of the principals coincide. For example, the topic of multiple relationships is one of the many principles that parallel in many codes of ethics. The IAMFC Code of Ethics encourages family counselors to “avoid whenever possible multiple relationships, such as business, social, or sexual contacts with any current clients or family members” (Section A). Similarly, the AAMFT Code of Ethics also requires that therapists “make every effort to avoid conditions and multiple relationships with clients that could impair professional judgment or increase the risk of exploitation.
Values and Ethics The NASW (2010) and the Texas Department of State Health Services provide a foundation on how social workers interacts with clients, colleagues, practice setting, and their environment. This code of ethics and Code of Conduct provide to the social workers with ethical responsibilities and values in practice setting. By analyzing this ethical responsibilities and values in practice setting it is easy to identify the ethical responsibilities I am currently using. The Texas Department of State Health Services [TDSHS] has a Code of Conducts for social workers that provides a standards of behaviors need to follow as to stay professional and avoid damaging clients’ lives and self. For example, The NASW (2010) describes an ethical principle to practice setting in which 3.07 Administration is describes has advocating for adequate services for clients to
Truth telling and confidentiality depend upon the situations. It is right to tell the truth in certain but it is also right to hide something from the patients in certain situations. According to utilitarianism one should usually tell the truth and keep one’s promise because you should always perform an action that provides maximum utility and if keeping a promise and telling the truth makes someone happy then it is providing maximum utility.
If we as nurses respect the confidentiality of a patient, we should do so for all the patients. However, Griffith (2007) argues that the duty of confidence should not be absolute and nurses should always consider sharing information if required. Though the principle of respecting patient autonomy and their right to confidentiality is broken here, the principle of beneficence and non-maleficence is uphold. Nurses have an obligation to protect patient’s confidentiality but the duty to warn an innocent party of imminent harm is far more critical. Therefore, breaking confidentiality here is potentially doing more good than
A nurse must keep up to date on education and new processes in health-care, so they can provide the best care. As a nurse, you have promised to give each of your patients the best care that can possibly be given. Nurses must follow a code of ethics, to act safely, provide ethical care no matter how they feel about the patient or the reason they are in your care. Following this code of ethics shows your commitment to caring for people and society, it is a guide of ethics and standards to follow to keep everyone safe. Nursing is also a wonderful opportunity to meet hundreds of people from almost every nationality and every walk of life.
