SWK 416 - Ethics in Social Work

(3 credits)
The intent of this course is to introduce students to the philosophical issues related to social work practice. Areas of study include a critical analysis of the profession’s role in society, and the relationships between social work values, its ethical guidelines, its knowledge base and research, and its practice skills. The course concludes with an analysis of the ethical and non-ethical issues facing practitioners and the various approaches to resolving ethical dilemmas.
