Leadership and Ethics

Leadership and Ethics (3-hour ethics CEU)


 Leadership and Ethics (3-hour ethics CEU)
Presented by: Alishia Ferguson, BSW, MSSW, LMSW, PhD

Join us for a discussion about leadership and ethics. We will take a broad view of Leadership and Ethics based on the conceptof Self Leadership in Social Work as defined by Bill McKitterick, who believes that Social Workers must all be leaders, regardless of their roles at work.

We will also discuss Dr Fredric Reamer’s stance on moral courage at work and how this idea informs both self-leadership and the ethics of leadership . We'll cover relevant sections of the NASW Code of Ethics that emphasizes each of the six social work values and how to apply the values in the context of leadership. Finally, we will complete the afternoon with case studies that highlight leadership and ethics
