Unit Resources

The NASW Code of Ethics (2021) is available online and in your textbook and is helpful in your discussion about the case examples. In addition, there are three case studies this week to go through again that all come from a previous version of your textbook, Reamer (2006). The PDFs of these documents are below as handouts. You can also see the Essential Steps for Ethical Decision Making on the National Association of Social Workers - Massachusetts Chapter (n.d.) website.

Your reading this week is from a booklet published by Paul and Elder (2006) The Thinker’s Guide to Understanding the Foundations of Ethical Reasoning.

Next week we will complete A-04: Ethical Decision-Making Case Study Group Chat, and I have picked groups members for everybody. You can see a handout of the group assignments.

You can watch all of the lecture videos for this class. Please watch and complete the embedded quiz at Fall 2022 SOWK 430 Week 11 - Stages of Moral Development
