Social Work Ethics and Technology Workshop at Dalton State College
March 13, 2012
March is National Social Work Month and to celebrate, a workshop in Social Work Ethics and Technology will be held at Dalton State's James E. Brown Center on Friday, March 30, at 12 noon.
"Given the rapid growth and use of technology, prevalence of social media, and increased focus on risk management, social service practitioner vigilance of the impact of technology on practice is vitally important," says Dr. Lynne Cabe, Assistant Professor of Social Work at Dalton State and coordinator of the workshop. "This program will focus on ways technology impacts professional practice, strategies to identify potential ethical dilemmas involving technology, and methods to reduce or eliminate inherent risks."
The workshop leader will be Bo Walker, Clinical Director for Partnership for Families, Children, and Adults in Chattanooga. He is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Diplomate in Clinical Social Work and serves on the National Association of Social Workers National Ethics Committee.
The 2008 NASW Code of Ethics and practice standards will be primary references for the training, Dr. Cabe said, adding that the workshop is approved for three Continuing Education Units for licensed Social Workers, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists, and Licensed Professional Counselors.
The program is co-sponsored by Dalton State's School of Social Work and Amedysis Hopsice of Dalton. Tickets are $45 and include lunch and CEUs; lunch reservation deadline is March 26.
