Social Work Ethics within Adoption Practice

Date and Time:December 8, 2016 at 12:00 pm EST

Fee:
Free for members, $25.00 for non-members.

Social work is riddled with ethical decision-making, especially within the context of adoption practice. When do you remove a child? Where is the child more likely to thrive with an adoptive parent or relative? Is it ever okay to recruit for siblings separately and place them in separate adoptive homes? This webinar will review the NASW code of ethics within the context of adoption decision-making. Participants will learn how these guiding principles relate to their daily work.

Presenter:Katheryn Tavares, MSW, and Emily Lyon, LICSW Adoption Rhode Island
