Description

ASSIGNMENT OVERVIEW

This assignment focuses on a case study, The Case of Marie, which you completed as a part of this unit's studies. This case involves an ethical dilemma with a diverse family, and the dilemma itself, like most ethical issues in group work, is potentially two-fold:

  1. The dilemma among the group members, as well as the content and manner of their communication with you.
  2. The ethical dilemma within yourself, as you examine your own natural preferences and biases in the context of the group and its needs.

At all levels of social work practice (micro, mezzo, and macro), the diversity of personal preferences and biases always presents the possibility of ethical compromise. Combined with potential ethical issues within the diverse situations, beliefs, and actions of the group members themselves, any given situation can quickly become ethically clouded.

By successfully completing this assignment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the following competencies and behaviors:

  • Competency 1: Demonstrate ethical and professional behavior.
    • C1.GP.B: Use reflection and self-regulation to manage personal values and maintain professionalism in practice situations.
