  • Case Studies
    • Sperm and Death
    • Informed consent must be obtained
    • Society has no obligation to ensure continuity of an individual family line
    • Sperm is not a organ it is a living organism and has a potential of creation thus does not come under organ donation
    • Taking the sperm without consent amounts to rape and battery
    • Professional and Social Work
    • Social work is a new type of professionalism
    • Our internal ethics is our guide to professional ethics so if we do not belong to an association we use that as our guide
    • Even without discipline association we have build in discipline ethics of expectation
    • We should have standardized ethics, association, registration and education across the country to maintain integrity and to establish clear professional criteria.
    • Social Workers should be accountable for their practices as are any other professional
  • Lecture Assignments

    • The code of ethics does not provide clear direction
    • Youth being Assessed
    • Do you share the file? Are you bound by your confidentiality to employer / the public who is your client?
    • Do you share the report? If you write about the youth and the family do they not have an equal right to see what you have written?
    • The youth is not your client he is the subject of your report.
    • Your ethics as a social worker are in conflict with the mandated role to provide information to have a youth incarcerated.
    • Do you emphasis one aspect more than another: ie that the your perceives he had a difficult childhood?
