(10) Confidentiality is an essential part of the counseling relationship. A client must be able to trust that the personal information he or she shares with me will not be revealed to other people. A counselor must explain the benefits and problems inherent in counseling services and clarify the limits of confidentiality to the client. As a social worker I would do the following to maintain confidentiality in thi case: 1.
This means absence of professionalism and flaunts the core ethical values (Mantley, 2000). Bioethical issues are a portion of a nurse’s daily routine. Nurses are part of a team and do not work alone. Nurses seek the advice the team in which he/ she is a member particularly when faced with unfamiliar or difficult situations for instance, in the DNR scenario.
1. Identify ethical issues - NASW Code of Ethics 1.06(d) and 1.07(f)(g) The main ethical dilemma is whether to disclose the husband’s extra-marital affair to Ms. Barnes or not. According to ethics code 1.07(f) and 1.07(g), when a social worker is providing counseling to multiple groups it is their job to inform clients of their rights to confidentiality. In the case of Mr. and Mrs. Barnes, the social worker has an ethical duty to not disclose to Mrs. Barnes.
There are boundaries that need to be between both the clients and social worker. When having a relationship in a profession setting me as a social worker has to make sure that the client knows it’s only a professional relationship. Furthermore, Leslie, D. H. (2005) article talks about the dignity worth of the person. She first explains how social workers should treat their clients in every situation.
In this particular instance, the
A key concept of Person-centered therapy is trust towards individuals ' ability to work in a beneficial way for self-fullfillment and autonomy, if current conditions provoke this self-growth process. This particular directional process towards “self-maturity” is formally defined as “actualizing tendency”; which for me is a quite inspiring and positive view that holds the belief that people have an inner capacity of self-healing and replenishing possible maladjustment without implying a movement away from interpersonal relationships and interdependence (Broadley, 1999). Personal thoughts of mine reflect the same point of view; one can heal himself/herself and realize his/her self-fulling life goals if there is qualitative time and qualitative thinking and try in his/her life. Firstly, by replenishing facades and progressively, by dealing with his 'her dysfunctional and “unwanted” emotions and behaviors. With the same perspective, PCT therapy relies on the assumption that people are already aware of the factors in their lives that makes them unhappy.
I chose this competency because it teaches me that I need to have a positive self-esteem and a great attitude towards my patients, colleagues and every situation in order to be able to provide holistic quality care. 2. The article taught me that fitness to practice, includes being accountable and responsible to cope with stress and know how to balance your duty to care for patients; and an equal duty to ensure that fitness to practice competently does not threaten the safety of patients, co-workers or oneself (p. 8). 3. The article widened my understanding that if I am not mentally or physically fit; it’s impossible for me to care for another and meet their needs and can put patients in danger due to errors.
Being hard on them may cause a strain in the relationship of us and the client, but we would always think of their best interests over anything. To me, social workers have the task to befriend the client and their family in order to build a good rapport, but that shouldn’t distract us from getting to the bottom of helping client with the issue(s) that they may be struggling with. To me, what ultimately matters to a social worker is the client’s well-being – if they really don’t want something even if we emphasized on the benefits of it, we should not force the solution down the client’s
Being a good nursing leader is so much more than understanding work flows, budgets and patient satisfaction. One strategy for leaders to improve their ability is to learn about and improve their own emotional intelligence. Emotional Intelligence Emotional Intelligence refers to the ability of a person to recognize, understand and master their own emotions as well as those of others (Codier & Codier, 2017). For anyone in a leadership position, charge nurse, nurse manager or director, being able to recognize and manage emotions in themselves and others is a great advantage. Indeed, emotional intelligence is viewed as one of the best predictors of a successful leader (Codier & Codier, 2017).
Since no person including the therapists/clinician are not clear/free of bias, it best for a social worker to be careful not to rely on stereotypes in a well-meaning attempt to be culturally sensitive. Rather she/he need to educate herself/himself about the experiences of individuals from diverse backgrounds. To become aware of the ways in which their own history, beliefs, values, and experiences have shaped them, and to proactively invite conversation about cultural differences in Cognitive Therapy. It is also best to keep in mind that even if people are from the same cultural, it does not mean their beliefs and values etc., would be identical from their family or culture. Social workers are face with complex situation always and its best to educated ourselves to the best of our abilities to help assist our clients.
As a social worker it is Evita’s responsibility to always practice honesty and to not be associated with any dishonesty. It is also Envita’s responsibility to ensure that parents are doing their jobs and the children are safe within their current situation. Even if Evita may assume that reporting this information to the physician will do little good, it is still what is right especially when referring back to the Social work code of ethics. Evita has agreed to act in a certain professional standard as a social worker and she is not following these standards if she chooses to not be honest about the information regarding this situation. If Evita in fact recognizes that Eric has died from a different cause then SIDS, it is wrong for Evita to not go ahead and report this knowledge to the physician.
It is crucial for a therapist to present a safe, peaceful and nonjudgmental environment to gain the trust of the client. When working with a crisis client, the therapist may have more of a challenge to obtain eye contact whereas a client that is not in crisis may feel ashamed. There is always a level of uncertainty with both the therapist and client in the first few initial meetings. The client may be wondering if they will be judged or accepted. Vulnerability is
Engagement can resolve ethical conflicts because it combines the views of both patient and nurse by looking at what is good and right (Moore, Engel, & Prentice, 2014). Should Michael choose to tell his parents the truth, Amir should be present and provide support as well as advice or a private place for the conversation. Amir should also be readily prepared with information and resources to help with the next steps. He should reassure the family members that the truth will not affect Michael’s well-being, rather hiding the truth will take away opportunities like formulation of will and last goodbyes with family and friends. Amir should also speak to the family and attempt to determine the justification for being upset with their son if he chooses to find out the
Making sure a person is safe should be everyone 's number one priority. Even though people go to therapists because they want someone to talk to who won 't judge them or divulge their secrets, divulging information about harming another person does not fall under that category. I agree that it can be very difficult for a therapist to decide when a patient actually intends on following through with the death threats or if the patient is just trying to vent. However, if he or she is a good therapist, then he or she should know their patient well enough to decide whether they are being serious.
The social work role in mental health is that of the social context and social consequences of mental illness. The purpose of social work practice is to promote recovery, restore individual family and community wellbeing in order to enhance the development of each individual’s power and control over their lives. This will also promote advance on the principals of social justice. The social work practice begins with the individual and then extends to family, social networks, community and the broader society (Australian Association of Social Workers, 2008). Individuals with mental health illness’ seek professional help during difficult times, discrimination and stigma, freedom from abuse, support to recover, getting their own homes and jobs
