that has ethical implications (examples include dual relationships, situations where client self-determination may be a factor, issues of respect or professionalism, etc.)

After thoroughly defining and describing the issue you select, write a narrative that includes:

  1. Describes personal dimensions of how this problem/situation may have somehow touched your life, including a discussion of your personal ethical standpoint and the origin of that ethical standpoint (you must be reflective in this section).
  2. Applies theories/ethics discussed in class and in the required readings to your assessment (Students must use the NASW Code of Ethics for this assignment).

3) The final section should be a thoughtful description of the personal plan you must devise to address

these perceived challenges to optimal professional practice, which includes a description of how you will apply strategies of ethical reasoning to arrive at principled decisions, and which demonstrates your ability to tolerate ambiguity in resolving ethical conflicts.Resources need to be from the Troy library database, Public library or websites (BUT the websites used can only be from a .org or a .gov site)
