After completing the Reading, discuss the responsibilities owed by Human Services Professionals to clients, students, colleagues, the profession, employers and society as a whole.
- How are the obligations owed to these various groups similar? How are they different?
- Identify a scenario in which an ethical obligation performed for or on behalf of one group might be unethical if performed for or to another?
- What are some ways you can use the Standards to prevent yourself from engaging in unethical behavior?
Finally, conduct some research on how ethical violations are addressed in your state. Discuss some of the procedures and any sanctions that have recently been imposed on professionals who have been found to have violated ethical practices.
